I think that the SCDB would be marginalized and superseded. That's what happened to the Metroid Database when Metroid Prime and the various other modern Metroid games came out.

Yeah, right after the shrine to glory of SC3.

Or, perhaps, a new SC hub will spring up overnight, catering to those only interested in the new release, and marginalizing us as "old-timers" forever.

All right, so it probably wouldn't happen.

I'm just wonder, if there does happen to be a new StarControl game, how will PNF be affected? Will our ranks swell with a bunch of uninformed but enthusiastic new StarControl fans? Will our tiny social community turn into a bustling megalopolis of new recruits? {Possibly bringing up old questions that no-one feels like re answering ;)-smf }. I guess that all has to do with how popular the game is.

I just emailed Alex Ness to ask why we haven't heard anything yet. Here's what he said:
Alex Ness wrote:Yes, you would be right that our game should have been announced by now however, something pretty crazy happened. We actually got more time to work on it. This is a rare and precious thing indeed. Usually you get less time, not more, because publishers know games often end up being late anyways. But in this case, Activision felt like our title was worth putting some extra love into and that's a beautiful thing. I believe we will now be shipping next year. When exactly, I don't know.
Pretty good news, if you're into delayed gratification!

I shall have to have a serious discussion about this with Paul next week during our squash game.

It's been two months now, and no news. :(

:shock: Wow, I check this site every now and then and after Star Control played Freelancer and now find myself without any new releases I like. Wouldn't StarControl 4 or something like that be nice?
