The video game industry already has several decades of history. One of the longest-running companies in this industry is Square Enix, which is home to very important franchises, such as Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy Y Kingdom Hearts. Well, the company was also in charge of creating Gex And a new lead indicates that the company hasn’t forgotten about the franchise and that it could come back.
Many players who grew up in the 1990s probably remember playing Gex, a game of the multiplatform 3D genre that was released in 1995 and marked the debut of the eponymous character, Gex, a lizard that became the mascot of Crystal Dynamics, its developer.
The title was successful, because in the margin of 4 years they managed to launch 3 deliveries. Although together the series sold more than 15 million units, unfortunately Crystal Dynamics decided to give the franchise a break that has lasted until today.
