Well, here's the latest official word on Legacy of Kain's future from Square Enix Collective boss, Phil Elliott:
"We've ...got lots of IP, lots of franchises that we don't do anything with any more. Can we open that up, and actually have developers use that as a stepping stone, and could it be a little easier for them to try to build a name for themselves around that? As opposed to something of their own creation, which is super hard. [...]
"People often ask about Legacy of Kain. We don't have any specific plans there, but if a team came along, they had plans for funding and they had a really cool idea, yeah. [...]
"As I say, we're open-minded, and I think exciting things could potentially come with that."
If you want a job done right, go off and do it yourself!

Phil Elliot, director of community and indie development at Square Enix, tweeted, “Wonder what the interest in the Legacy of Kain IP would be if we made it available to indies to license?”
That could become just a great opportunity to get this project finished (or making something new), with even more modern concept and faithful style.
