Crystal Dynamics have stated they are open to publishing the remake for consoles if enough support is shown...

Blood Omnicide is a project to recreate Blood Omen: Legacy Of Kain in 3D. The primary goal is to preserve the feel of the original game by providing nearly same gameplay, balance and atmosphere whilst giving the game an audio and visual overhaul. There will be improvements & innovations but the most critical ones will be optional in order to not violate the game experience.

The secondary goal is to provide a Software Development Kit(SDK) that is open for user created content. Omnicide can be used as a base for expansion packs and modifications created in the world of Blood Omen or even total conversions to create/recreate other games, such as the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Blood Omnicide is modification, it provides a patch that will port the original game to a new rendering pipeline. Blood Omnicide requires the PC Demo, PC or PS1 Commercial Releases of Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain in order to play.
