EA Wants to Bring Back Bullfrog Classics, Rejoice!
Bullfrog titles were some of the games that got me through the 90’s. Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet & Syndicate are classics in my eyes and I’ve been waiting for years to see if they would ever resurrect any of these classic titles and now word seems to have slipped that EA, who hold the rights for the Bullfrog games are at least starting to think about bringing these back, EA’s Harvey Elliot had the following to say:
If you remember all the old classics you played, if you go back and play them now, they’re not the same. They were right for their time, and the trick with those games is coming up with what’s right for the time now. I’m going to look at them at some point, I think there’s an opportunity to bring those back in the future, but only if it’s right for the time and not just a ‘remake’ or something. We’d need to do it in a way that’s true to the original values, but would still make a great game today.
Syndicate on the iPhone, Magic Carpet on the Virtual Console and Theme Hospital on the DS it’s that easy. Get to it EA, we already know how much you guys like money people will pay for these!
