EA Open to More Bullfrog Revivals

Populous, Magic Carpet, Dungeon Keeper, Theme Park--Bullfrog Productions churned out a large amount of original IP during the early 80s and 90s, all of which is now owned by Electronic Arts.

EA is already known to be producing a sequel to Bullfrog's classic tactical shooter Syndicate, but now the publisher says it's open to exploring other Bullfrog franchises in the future.

"I'm going to look at them at some point, I think there's an opportunity to bring those back in the future," said EA Bright Light chief Harvey Elliot to Kikizo. "But only if it's right for the time and not just a 'remake' or something. We'd need to do it in a way that's true to the original values, but would still make a great game today."

Added Elliot: "The thing is, the romance of the idea is often detached from the reality of executing it. If you remember all the old classics you played, if you go back and play them now, they're not the same. They were right for their time, and the trick with those games is coming up with what's right for the time now."
