Personally, I had always hoped Blood III would be along the lines of what they did to DooM - disregard the sequel and retell the story from the very beginning, using an advanced engine.
Mind you, it doesn't have to be an exact copy of Blood (just as DooM3 isn't an exact copy of DooM - far from it, in fact, but that's another story) yet it should retain all the weapons, enemies and characters from the original game, and maybe even introduce some new enemies (I always thought werewolves would fit in nicely).
Well, that's my idea anyway...

I'm not sure werewolves or vampires would fit in. The cabal has nothing to do with them so it would be a bit weird to me. Depends on how they bring them though.

Nah, not vampires - way too cliché.
But werewolves; well, if the Cabal's got Gargoyles...

I think it should be more like the original but not too much of a remake.

Would be hard to do like the original considering the fact that Blood 2 happened in the future.

I think, personally, they'll bring back the concept but change things around to fit the different game audience. They'll probably bring back Caleb but change everything else. The settings, the other characters, the occult, just to name a few.

That seems to be the trend with updates these days. :/

I fell on this while reading an interview of Dave Matthews about FEAR 2 :


AusGamers : Okay. Now a bit of a throwback question for a lot of our readers: Blood and Shogo - any chance we're going to see any of these come back?

Dave Matthews : I'll say never say never (laughs). We get a lot of feedback about it from our community - guys asking 'make a Blood game, make a Shogo game', um... it's always in the back of our head, so we'll see.

I have some really good and bad news...

http://forums.transfusion-game.com/view ... 4621#24621

Good News: We can do everything we want with Blood now. Looks like it's up to the modders to keep Blood alive now.

Bad News: Looks like Blood 3 won't be happening...

RIP Blood

Whoaaa...MY FUCKING...


They canceled Blood 2 in 1999...

They just canceled Blood, in 2009.

I thought Blood wasn't their property ? What about the code ? What about everything ?
