Square Enix has released a statement after rumors spread pertaining to a War for Nosgoth listing in Steam's database. Yes, War for Nosgoth is in development and yes, it is related to the Legacy of Kain universe. However, it is neither a traditional Legacy of Kain experience nor is it a single player game. As such, any Legacy of Kain fans should probably lie down and have a good cry.
Whatever War for Nosgoth is, it's not being developed by Crystal Dynamics either. As such, the connections between this new title and nostalgia from the past should turn to dust. Whoa be us who dreamed a dream, for that dream has died.
Square Enix apologizes for being so cagey at this point in time, but really they're doing us all a favor. We, by all means, should not know about War for Nosgoth at this point in time. If things had gone to plan then Square Enix could have revealed the game, its connection the the Legacy of Kain universe, its developer, and why it's going to blow our minds all at the same time. We wouldn't have had the opportunity to set ourselves up for disappointment. This is our own fault, but that doesn't make it feel any better.
War for Nosgoth will be fully unveiled when the time is right. That time is not now, and not at E3 either according to Square Enix. Be excited for the franchise's returns; be excited that Square Enix is excited about bringing the franchise back. Take minute to reset expectations, and then maybe forget about War for Nosgoth and Legacy of Kain for a few more months.
