BloodRayne and Other Majesco Properties Acquired By Ziggurat Interactive

BloodRayne's back from the dead again.

It looks like BloodRayne might be due for a revival. The rights to the vampire action game series has been acquired alongside a number of other Majesco properties by Ziggurat Interactive.

In a press release, Ziggurat says it's already working with Terminal Reality, the original BloodRayne developer, to update PC versions of the older games. Plans are also being developed to further dive into BloodRayne's universe.

Also acquired by Ziggurat were Advent Rising, Raze's Hell, and Flip's Twisted World, all of which are now in the Ziggurat catalog. A relatively new publisher, Ziggurat has focused mostly on retro acquisitions and preserving classic games from the degradation of time. It's already acquired properties like the Commodore 64's Forbidden Forest and the 1985 PC game Super Huey.

The original BloodRayne, first released in 2002, was all about killing Nazis as an attractive vampire named Rayne. Published by Majesco, it was a popular property even if critical reception wasn't as keen on it. It's been nine years since BloodRayne's last game, the side-scrolling action game BloodRayne: Betrayal. While the vampire series spawned a number of comics and even a movie, it's since been lost to time without many attempts to revive the series until now.

Maybe with the resurgent popularity of games like Vampyr and the upcoming sequel to the classic Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, the time could be ripe for a BloodRayne revival. We'll see what Ziggurat can pull together with the property, but at least now, it isn't just gathering dust somewhere. Hopefully the new attempt isn't another movie.
