Cryptosporidium-137, better known as Crypto, is making a comeback. THQ Nordic has revealed it is reviving Destroy All Humans. The latest entry in the series is going to be a remake of the original game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is being developed by Black Forest Games, the developer behind Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, and it will be released in 2020.
The remake will once again follow Crypto as he comes to Earth to try and after a fellow Furon crash landed there. The alien then ends up going across the country, destroying everything. The remake will include a new “Lost Mission of Area 42” mission, according to the Amazon product page.
The first Destroy All Humans remake trailer has also been released.
