Since Crystal Dynamics and Eidos successfully rebooted Tomb Raider, do you think we'll ever see Legacy of Kain again or Gex?

Considering that neither of these series were ever exclusive to Sony, PlayStation or anything like that, and considering that the story of Legacy of Kain is over and Gex was nev er relevant to begin with, I doubt it. I'd love to see an HD remaster for the Legacy of Kain games though, more people need to play those games
The series also stopped with PlayStation 1 as Tomb Raider kept going with PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, PC and growing larger with more games and movies.
So Tomb Raider had a lot more to come back on as Gex and Legacy of Kain really don't, regardless it would be nice to see them make an attempt.
I wonder what this new title would've been like. Too bad we'll never know. Was really hoping for a next gen legacy of kain.
It's MP component was turned into Nosgoth which is coming out for consoles soonish as a MOBA or something. From what I have seen, it's pretty much like Shadowrun for Xbox 360 -- you guys remember that pile of steaming dung right? Well, if not, it was an easily forgettable MP shooter that the developers hijacked from the Shadowrun universe to make a quick buck. Pretty much, Nogoth will play just like that game and destroy any chance we have of getting a decent LoK game for this generation; so I'm stuck playing the old stuff on a great HD TV, and I'm stuck wondering what might have been had Square-Enix opted to remaster the old games so they don't look like garbage on my TV. Guess I will have to invest in an old tube TV from someone's yard sale soon.
That reminds me. Square-Enix is garbage, and I would not expect them to see the wisdom in creating a HD remake of the LoK games or even a reboot. They consider the TR reboot a pseudo-failure as is because it did not hold up to expectations. It's as if they expect the world to worship Lara Croft or something, lol. Not all of us care about TR, just like not all of us care about Gex or Kain or Raziel, but some of us do, and I think that enough of us would buy those reboots or HD remasters too.
Before anyone asks why I am on my soap box about this stuff, I can answer by saying this: Re-living a past gem like the Legacy of Kain saga, is nostalgia, and it is also remembering who did compelling narrative and storyline in a different way before it became the norm. Sure, the LoK games were far from perfect, and I mostly hate the combat in the majority of those games; however, the rest of the game play, minus the bits that make people frustrated and roll their eyes, are riveting. Furthermore, I don't own a XP PC, and I can't get Blood Omen 2 and Soul Reaver to run on my PC without crashing all the time, so my only hope of getting the entire saga in HD format is to wait until SE decides to remake the set in HD on console. That's what's up with me.
