Who says this would be the final game? If I were Stardock, I'd be thinking something like:Guest wrote:Don't leave us fans hanging with only a reboot as the final Star Control game!!
* The game everyone wants is the sequel to SC2, where we get the story of the MkII.
* But, I just paid $305k for the rights to this franchise; I don't want to do just one game.
* So, before we make SC3, we make SC0, a prequel which tells the story of Earth's first contact with the Chenjesu and its entry into the alliance. Maybe we include an SC1-like strategic game; this would match well with Stardock's expertise in turn-based strategy games, and it would give us the chance to iron out any problems without the risk of screwing up the game everyone's really waiting for.
* Then, once we've got some game engine technology created, and a development team with a track record, and hopefully honed everyone's appetite for Star Control, we do SC3, the proper sequel to SC2.
Makes perfect sense to me.
