Following Just Add Water's Stranger's Wrath HD update, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee will be the next game in the Oddworld quintilogy that'll get a hi-def refresh. No platforms have been announced, but PS3 and PC seem likely.
Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning says Just Add Water does not intend to make any major changes for the update:
"Abe HD is going into production. It’s basically Abe’s Oddysee being redone in a 3D physics engine as a 2D side-scrolling platformer. So the way Just Add Water wants to approach it, we thought was very smart; they are not trying to reinvent any wheels. It’s like, ‘Can we make that experience in a new engine, with new tech, in the old way?'"
Abe's Oddysee puts players in the role of Abe, an enslaved Mudokon who must escape from the RuptureFarms meat-processing plant after its owner makes a desperate decision to use the Mudokons as meat products. Abe makes use of his possession and speaking abilities to solve puzzles and free other fellow Mudokons.
