Rebellion has announced it is working on a PC remaster of the 1998 Battlezone, in addition to the Battlezone reboot coming to virtual reality devices which was revealed at E3 earlier this month.

"As our teaser trailer revealed, our VR version of Battlezone is very much a reboot of Atari's 1980 arcade classic, a game we're very fond of at Rebellion," reads an open letter to fans. "However, we also know that a number of you are fans of the 1998 and 1999 Battlezone games released by Activision that re-imagined the franchise as a groundbreaking hybrid of FPS and RTS gameplay.

"Naturally when we made our announcement last week some of you asked, 'But what about the newer Battlezone games? What are you doing with them?'"

The letter adds: "It's still early days but when we're ready to show you more you'll be the first to know, All we can say for now is that whichever vision of Battlezone you love, you've not been forgotten!"
