At the same time Legend of Dragoon was announced to be coming to the PSN on May 1st, president of Sony CE Shu Yoshida, also mentioned that Legend of Dragoon 2 had gone into pre-production but was cancelled shortly after. For some unknown reason Sony scrapped the project and decided to stop production on the game and send their team members to other projects.
This is really sad news for the Legend of Dragoon community as this has been a highly anticipated sequel. I was pretty upset when I read the article but then it got me thinking. If the game sells enough in the PSN and a fanbase gets together it might be possible that Sony could pick up the project again or possibly do a remake.
What is everyones thoughts in this?
I still occasionally hear from fans of The Legend of Dragoon, and many want to know if there is a sequel. LOD2 was put into preproduction after I left the Japan Studio, but was eventually cancelled for some unknown reason, and the team members moved on to different projects. Some people still work in the Japan Studio, so we talk about the memories of developing LOD when we see each other at company functions.

Here is a Link to a Site with Legacy of Kain Fan Games and Mods Info and Links but I am still a new Member here so I will have to break up the Link. Just remove a few spaces and convert the dot to an actual .
h t t p : / / lokfangames dot m dot webs dot com
the lost worlds dot net is also a Fantastic LoK site which holds all the Secrets, Cut Content from the Released Games AND the Info and Goodies from the Cancelled Games.
I reccomend checking them out and thinking about how we Legend of Dragoon Fans could do similar.

I am really REALLY UNHAPPY! Not just at the Cancellation of Legend of Dragoon 2 and the PS All Stars DLC Nixing but also because I just lost a very detailed Post a moment ago here!
On the DLC it is a Shame but Honestly I think Rose or Lloyd might have been a Better Choice for the DLC. Dart is..... OK.... But not much more. It was always Rose, Meru, Lavitz and Lloyd that Wowed Me!
As to Legend of Dragoon 2 maybe there is a way to learn more? If we can find out who the Production Staff/Team were then that is a good point to work from.
Artists usually have an Online Portfolio so if we can check those for any Concept Art or Character Designs, Monster Designs, DRAGON DESIGNS, Backgrounds and Architecture which matches the Themes, Styles and Aesthetics of Legend of Dragoon then it could be very very Informative and Interesting.
There is a Chance such Art would be Untitled or labelled Misc or "Commission I cannot talk about due to NDA" etc but there IS HOPE!
Two Cancelled Legacy of Kain Games "The Dark Prophecy" and another Title.... "Black Sun" Maybe? Were thought to be complete Mysteries but over time more and more comes to light from Concept Art all the way up to Unskinned Renders and Wireframes, Unused Music, Story Outlines etc due to both Artists and Designers showcasing some Untitled Art that Sharp Eyed Fans noticed connections in and "Misplaced" and "Hacked" Data Files becoming available online.
We should aim to Emulate the LoK Fans Efforts and Diligence.
They even have Mods of LoK Games and Brand New Stand Alone Fan Games!
Legacy of Kain: Blood Omnicide. Which is a Remake of Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen but with Improved Graphics.
Then there are the Fan Games.....
Legacy of Kain: Prodigal Sons.
A Castlevania Style Side Scroller which I cannot remember the Name of to my Shame.
And even an attempt at a Soul Reaver Directors Cut which aims to restore all of the Planned but Cut Content to the Game.

Just started playing LOD1 again, bumping for sequel/prequel
Jan 12, 15 at 9:05pm
I'd be more interested in a prequel than a sequel. The Dragon Campaign specifically. What could they possibly make a sequel about anyway? I just can't see it. That and to me the game had a pretty powerful "The End" feeling to it and I was satisfied with it. A sequel would be fine with me though so long as its in the spiritual sense only.
Remake, spiritual sequel; I don't care. Just give me a new LoD game!

I would love a prequel but if they did a sequel I wouldn't mind them going in a new directions n choosing new characters so they don't mess up the story of the original but dnt matter wat they do with it I would buy it the day it is announced

I think they should pick it back up, it was a beast of a game and it changed the way I thought about RPG's, I originally didn't like them but FF and LOD changed that forever.

This is most definitely one of my most favorite games of all time! Sony really needs to make some sort of sequel, prequel or remake of this game! The game has a very devoted fanbase that would consider any game related to this series as a day one buy. Thats why I joined this petion and facebook group that has just recently started to try and push for something to happen! Here's the link if you want to check it out!
I've been wanting to see a sequel or even a remake since I beat the first one in '01 but this is the first I've seen the site but I've had the lod off the psn since it was released and still own a copy and ps1 just to enjoy the amazing storyline

I'd fully support a second one. Oh the nostalgia it would bring about. Between a LoD2 and the fabled Chrono Break I'd be in heaven. But sadly games don't come in the quality that they used to, so it's possible they wouldn't have that 'epic' feel to them.

This was one of the awesome games that was ever made besides Final Fantasy 7 so please make another one I am a true buyer of fun games thank you very much
