The upcoming high-resolution remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee by Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water has hit a change in direction. On the official Oddworld Inhabitants Facebook page, it was announced that the game is now a full-on reboot, instead of just an upport of the old game.
"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game. It will be getting it's first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)," reads the announcement.
So all you Oddworld fans will have to wait a little longer for your next fix.
