Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition

Nightdive Studios announced that their remaster of Blade Runner will not be able to meet the release date of 2020. Well, they didn’t announce any replacement date too.


Blade Runner is a point-and-click adventure game. It was launched back in 1997. The game was developed by Westwood Studios and was published by Virgin Interactive for PC.


In an interview with Eurogamer, Nightdive Studios CEO Stephen Kick said that the team is facing a lot of complexities in the development of the remaster. Due to the nature of the original game, the developers are facing a lot of hurdles. The developers are trying their best to locate the source code of the original adventure game. Developers are also finding it difficult to locate the assets of the original version.

Nightdive Studios is known for restoring the classic games. Some of its previous works are- System Shock and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter.

Back in 1998, when EA took over Westwood, the studio was moved. As a result of this locomotion, the source code of Blade Runner was lost. However, the franchise is trying its best to retrieve all the missing parts of the game. It is also quite tough to tackle with the old mechanics of the game.
