Though the studio would like to continue working on the series.
Sony’s output of first party exclusives might have been lighter in 2019 than what we’ve become used to seeing from them this console generation (or what we’re going to see from them this year), but that doesn’t mean there was no stuff to enjoy at all. One of the smaller projects was a ground-up remake of the PS1 classic MediEvil, developed by Other Ocean Emeryville, and though it didn’t exactly set the world ablaze, the fans of the property were more than happy with how they modernized the game.
Given that, many have been hoping that a remake for MediEvil 2 will follow as well, and sure enough, some developments just last month made it seem like that might happen. Unfortunately though, it seems like that’s not the case- for now, at least. Jeff Nachbaur, producer at Other Ocean Emeryville, recently took to Twitter to confirm that the studio is no longer working on anything more related to MediEvil. He did, though, add that Other Ocean would be “more than happy” to continue working with the series, and that they have “some grand plans for future Dan adventures if given the chance.”
Here’s hoping Sony responds to what fans of the series are hoping to see, and teams up with Other Ocean once again not long from now. I know I wouldn’t mind playing a MediEvil 2 remake on the PS5.
#MediEvil is probably the most favorite thing I've gotten to work on in my career. I am incredibly proud of my team and the work that they did to resurrect a classic. And if anyone is asking, yes… we have some grand plans for future Dan adventures if given the chance!
