Arc System Works Teasing a New BloodRayne Game to be Revealed on April 23
Terminal Reality, the studio behind the action hack-and-slash series BloodRayne, shut down in December of last year, but it appears the franchise isn't dead. Arc System Works, the developer and publisher most famous for the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, issued a press release and launched a teaser site that seems to indicate it's developing and/or publishing a new BloodRayne game with the acronym BRCS.
The site contains a black and red image of what is clearly Rayne, though taking on quite a different look than in previous games. The necklace, ribbons flowing from her hair, and the sword all point to it definitely being her though, which you can see in the image I ripped from the site below. The site also contains the following two lines:
She who fights with monsters might take care lest she thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.
A full reveal is planned for next Wednesday, April 23. It is unclear whether original publisher Majesco Games is involved with this new entry, or if the company sold the rights to Arc System Works.
