Is Blizzard Working On Redneck Rampage Reloaded?
Blizzard admitted some time ago that a new IP was in the works, but kept silent regarding the issue. However, it appears that the new Blizzard game might be based on the Redneck Rampage series.

In addition, it seems that the hillbilly FPS series have much more in common with Blizzard than one would suspect at first glance:
“This may sound like an odd choice for a new Blizzard title but after some investigation there are Blizzard team members who worked on the original Redneck games, including WoW's Senior Producer on Wrath of the Lich King, Burning Crusade and StarCraft Ghost who was Lead Level Designer on Redneck Rampage.”
So, is Blizzard actually considering a revival of the Redneck series? It’s true, both the genre and the game theme are out of Blizzard’s usual area of interest (fantasy-based RPGs or RTSs), but, then again, it just might be that the company seeks to diversify its portfolio.
