Having bought the rights to the Star Control strategy series from Atari, Stardock plans to give it the reboot treatment.
“We expect the new Star Control to come in the form of a reboot, similar to what Firaxis did with the XCOM series last year,” said Brad Wardell, president and CEO of Stardock in a press release. "We are looking at Star Control II as a major source of inspiration.”
Star Control II released in 1992, presenting players with an intergalactic adventure with strategic, 4X and shooter elements. Since Stardock has plentiful experience with similar genres, having developed Sins Of A Solar Empire, this could potentially be very exciting indeed. More as we hear it.
