Blood III (or Blood 3), is an undeveloped game in the Blood series that would be the sequel to Blood II: The Chosen (more specifically set after the The Nightmare Levels expansion pack). Many have asked for Monolith Productions the original developers of the series, to create the game and there has been some recorded hints of interest from within the company at various points but no real advancement has been achieved. Monolith stated in the Spring of 2007 that "Monolith currently has no plans to revive the Blood franchise, but you never know what could happen in the future!" Some major factors that have prohibited a Blood III are: the main stream commercial failure of Blood II: The Chosen and that the Blood series intellectual property is owned by Atari and not Monolith Productions thus making the game a legal problem.
Some people have also suggested making a fan made sequel to Blood II: The Chosen (particularly noting the idea of a game "made by the fans for the fans"), however no such project has achieved any great accomplishment. Apparently there was once a project called Blood 3: Reborn by Arch Game Studios that was trying to make sequel to Blood II, but it was shut down because of criticism and pressure from Monolith Productions. The Blood community however will likely keep the idea of a Blood III alive and continually debate its possibilities or what they would wish it to be like. It is also not uncommon on Blood community forums to hear rumours about a new sequel to Blood or any sort of modern offical Blood project.
Plot-wise, many think that Blood III would likely follow along the common hints of the Blood II: The Chosen back story about Caleb and the Chosen's wish for world conquest, possibly by taking control of the Cabal and Caleb officially ascending as the seventeenth incarnation of Tchernobog or maybe even by the Chosen creating their own army.
Some fan works are set after the events of Blood II: The Chosen such as the fan comic Tales of Blood: Everyday Life, the fan fiction pieces The Chosen in the Haunted Mansion, How Much Time Has Passed, and The Chosen Versus the Mad Scientists. The fan fiction More Blood in the Arena Eternal and the fan comic Caleb versus Lobo have also been suggested as being set after Blood II: The Chosen. There are also some fan artwork, made by Dark Caleb and +DeaD+ that show a desire to promote the idea of a Blood III (see accompanying picture).
