It’s a pretty heavy handed tease.
Obsidian is known and beloved for many of their games, but Alpha Protocol, their spy-op RPG that they released with Sega, is arguably their most under appreciated gem. The game was incredibly janky, and really, it had way too many problems for it to actually be recommended as a good game- but underneath all that faff was something truly special.
Of course, a lot of players simply didn’t get to play the game, and like many Obsidian titles pre-Pillars of Eternity, it underperformed. That said, Obsidian may be looking at bringing it back for another go. Limited Run Games recently tweeted a question asking if fans would want a modern day remaster of Alpha Protocol, which in and of itself would be notable, but nothing concrete.
However, now, none other than Obsidian themselves have gone ahead and responded to the Limited Run Games tweet, with nothing but an emoji of a pair of eyes slyly looking away. Which seems to be a pretty heavy handed indication that it may at least be in consideration, if not outright confirmed internally.
Alpha Protocol is available on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
