Rise of the Triad has “returned,” claims Twitter account

Over the top 90s FPS coming back?

A seemingly official Twitter account for Rise of the Triad, “the world’s most ludicrous shooter” from the 90s, spotted today by an eagle-eyed Redditor says the Apogee-developed title is making a return.

The account’s profile once read: “The world’s most ludicrous shooter has returned thanks to @InterceptorEnt and @ApogeeSoftware. See more at RiseOfTheTriads.net.” Upon discovery, however, it’s since changed to: “The world’s most ludicrous shooter has returned!” It still, however, is followin both Interceptor and Apogee Software.

The website, RiseOfTheTriad.net, is currently parked at mlhosting. Its Whois records show that it is owned by Apogee Software, however.

Back in 2009, Apogee Software founder Scot Miller told Gamasutra the developer was “going to reboot the Rise of the Triad franchise.”
