Looks like a good day for Alpha Protocol fans as it seems the game is being teased for a Remaster.
Released back in 2010 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC; Action RPG Alpha Protocol was developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Sega. Although not receiving any major critical acclaim or sales after its release to warrant a sequel, Alpha Protocol has gained sort of a cult following due to the way the game handles player choices and its setting.
Limited Run Games Co-Founder Douglas Bogart recently tweeted out if fans would like a Remaster of the game, which considering the 74% Positive rating at the time of writing, is a resounding yes.
Do you want a remaster of Alpha Protocol for modern consoles?

Limited Run Games, as the name suggests, is a small time video game distributor that specializes in Physical releases of Digital only games. The games are sold exclusively on their website. Some notable releases by the company are Oxenfree, Yooka-Laylee and Dust: An Elysian Tail among others. How publishing would work is confusing though as SEGA owns the IP and not Obisidian.
Obsidian later retweeted this suggesting they too are interested in bringing the game to current gen consoles.

Although I wouldn’t consider myself the biggest fan of the game, I did find the plot and setting of Alpha Protocol really fascinating. I’m sure many would agree with me that the IP certainly has a lot of potential still, maybe this potential Remaster could pave a way for a sequel? Obsidian sure is willing.
Lastly the game has some pretty great dialogue segments, the video sums it up nicely:
Would you be interested in a Remaster for Alpha Protocol or a sequel? Let us know in the comments.
