No One Lives Forever is a cult-classic, but the series remains unavailable on modern systems and digital stores. There have been occasional rumblings of a revive, including a 2014 trademark filing from Steven Kick, the CEO of Nightdive Studios. That never eventuated, but Kick has not given up yet on bringing the game back.
In a new interview with Noclip (below), Kick talks about how Nightdive Studios started, and their current work on System Shock (including the upcoming remake). He also touches on the subject of No One Lives Forever, its sequel No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.’s Way, and spin-off Contract J.A.C.K, and his ongoing attempts to bring them back.
When asked what series he’d most like to bring back, Kick immediately jumped to No One Lives Forever. “That’s a tough one,” he says. “Its rights have just been split across the four winds.”
