Square Enix's cancelled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun 'not the right game'

Following a leak about a cancelled Legacy of Kain game, Square Enix has stepped in to explain a few details about it and why it was canned. The game was titled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun, and community manager George Kelion says it simply "wasn't the right game, at the right time."

Kelion took to the NeoGAF thread (via VG247) that publicized the cancelled game. "I can confirm that Dead Sun was a project which had been in development--but which was cancelled. I know it's disappointing to hear about these things out of context, and whilst some of the details released are accurate--some details are not."

He went on to say that the community would have to take his word that the game wasn't in the right place, before sharing scads of concept art for curious fans. "Obviously, it's not usual for assets from cancelled games to be released, but given that there's a lot out there already I thought you might appreciate seeing a few more images that were taken from the previously in-progress game," he said.

He also pointed out that there is another game set in that universe coming, the multiplayer-focused Nosgoth. "It's grown in size and scope since its initial conception and we'll be talking more about it in the future. While we're not working on a single-player Legacy of Kain game right now, that doesn’t mean it's not something we’d look at making in the future."
