A rumor over at VG247 claims that Crystal Dynamics is currently working on a reboot of Soul Reaver, the second game in the Legacy of Kain series.

An unnamed source told the site that the studio’s reboot is a “full reworking of the vampire action classic, and includes a new art direction”. It is also hinted that the new Soul Reaver will be reaveled sometime this year, although the site staff does seem to have some reservations about this information.

Soul Reaver was originally released back in 1999 for the Playstation and PC as the second game in the vampire series Legacy of Kain. The game stars Raziel – a vampire turned wraith who seeks revenge on his killer and former master Kain (the protagonist of the previous game in the series).

Crystal Dynamics other known projects include the Tomb Raider reboot, and another new IP to be revealed later this year.
