I bet that many of you, LOK fans, have been awaiting even a slightest news at the recently ended E3. What was announced? Square Enix had the following games on display:
Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3, Xbox 360)
Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Hitman: Absolution (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Tomb Raider (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Dungeon Siege III (PS3, Xbox 360, PC)
Heroes of Ruin (Nintendo 3DS)
and several other games for mobile segment.
Alas, no LOK in there... Though I was eagerly awaiting the news about the new IP as promised by one of Eidos employees on twitter, but the big surprise turned out actually the release date of the new Tomb Raider reboot which was pushed to March, 2013. Why is LOK of such no interest to Square? Or perhaps the recent release of Soul Reaver on gog.com and being released for free on PSN+ might suggest that Eidos haven´t forgotten about their series just yet. We will have to wait and see if any official statement will be done by Square Enix.
As for the polls on my blog, on previous poll 50% of the voters said that they bought SR from gog and 37% is still planning to. In the poll regarding E3 "will there be new LOK announced this year?", 33% voted no, 25% yes and 41% wasn´t sure. I will be posting a new poll soon together with some other news!
