The HD remake of Abe’s Oddysee has been put to one side, and instead the team at Just Add Water are focusing on rebooting the game from scratch, according to a Facebook post.
“OK, so here’s the skinny on Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee,” says the post. “We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game.”
“It will be getting its first public showing later this year, with a release date of next Summer (2013).”
Little has been seen of Abe’s Oddysee HD, but it feels ripe for a complete overhaul rather than a new skin, so this sits nicely with us and – presumably – the legions of Oddworld fans eager for more in the series canon.
