The thing is simple. All those publishers care for is profit. No, they don't care is it fun. No, they don't care if you'll regret spending your money on the product. No, they don't care if the product is bugged. QA? Patching bugs? Support? What's that? That only generates costs.

GothicGothicness is right with boycotting games coming from a certain publisher. We should all do the same. And then they'll be able to con only their mother.
That's just it, if you want profits you have to have brains to make those profits. Who exactly do they think they will be targeting with this game. Fans of the series are already in an uproar because of this travesty, and won't touch it with a ten-foot pole. Players that never played the series won't buy it because they hear its in the LOK setting. This effectively benefits no one. All they'll get is bad press.

The only thing that could save it if it was actually good, which we don't know yet. But if its good it'll stand on its own. What I mean to say is that I'm absolutely sure no one will play it because it's in the Nosgoth setting. It's just a bad decision imo. They'd have a better chance to just go with a generic vampire setting, and not bear any resemblance to LOK.

Oh, well …. I'm just amazed at the brains it took to greelight this. Do they actually have no idea what people want?

BTW, for anyone not aware, there were 10 Legacy of Kain games cancelled so far. Some guy did one hell of a research for this:
