Acclaimed sci-fi action title Outcast is getting a revival, according to its new owners.

Outcast was developed for Windows PC by Appeal and published in 1999 by Infogrames (now Atari), who also owned the IP.

A sequel was planned for PlayStation 2 but never materialised as Appeal went bankrupt during the game’s development. Plans for a Dreamcast port of the first game were also abandoned.

However rights to the game have recently been acquired by Appeal founders Yann Robert, Franck Sauer, and Yves Grolet, who intend to create a new game using the IP.

Outcast was critically acclaimed at the time of its release, and boasted a number of then-cutting edge features including an open world and an orchestral score.
