At first I thought it was a hoax, and I haven't seen real evidence that it isn't yet :). Was it confirmed somewhere else by a verifyable source?
Anyway, this feels for me like when your dad leaves for 25 years and then comes back and still expects a father-son relationshop. I would have to regain trust then :).

In general I'm not a fan of prequels. But 'ghosts of the precursors' could mean anything.

It ain't a prequel. It's a direct sequel. And it was in a blog post by Paul and Fred.

It has already brought two new users, more to come, I'm sure!

There's also talk about it on their Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/Dogar_And_Kazon
IF it is a hoax, it's a well-planned and well-executed one.
And since we're nowhere close to 1st of April, I do not assume that FF and PRiii are pulling a prank here.
(Althought the twitter does not tell me much if it is a genuine channel anyway, the only hint of genuinity I have is the link provided in the StarDock post, see below)

Now also PCgamer published an article: http://www.pcgamer.com/25-years-later-star-control-2-is-getting-a-direct-sequel/

Also, the StarDock (brand owner of "Star Control") reply:
Ghosts of the Precursors
October 9, 2017 7:15:47 PM from Star Control Forums ¦ Star Control Forums

Four years ago Stardock acquired Atari's rights to Star Control. I soon got to meet my hero, Paul Reiche. He was, more than anyone else, the person who inspired me to become a game developer over 20 years ago.

Over the past 4 years, we have communicated regarding the progress of Star Control: Origins. He asked us not to try to make a sequel to Star Control 2 and said that he hoped one day to be able to return to the universe he and Fred Ford created.

Recently, Paul told me the good news: Activision was going to let him do a true sequel to Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters (i.e. Star Control III is not canon for that universe).

Today, they posted the news publicly: https://dogarandkazon.squarespace.com/

It's still very early but they will have all the characters from Star Control 2 plus new ones. It's going to be called Ghosts of the Precursors.

For 4 years, people asked me why we weren't going to touch the Star Control 2 story. Now you know.

As soon as they have an official site for it, we'll let you know.

Seriously though, I say just one thing:
Let the hype commence.
