Stardock plans to reboot Star Control

0

Inspired by Firaxis' template for XCOM

Galactic Civilizations developer Stardock is set to take on Star Control, a classic series by any measure, after picking up the rights from Atari. What are the studio's plans? CEO Brad Wardell has some reassuring words: "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. We are looking at Star Control II as a major source of inspiration."

Wardell writes that "We won't be making any changes to the existing Star Control games. And Atari doesn't actually own the copyright on Star Control 1/2 so it's not like one could make a Star Control 2 HD or what have you without a license from Paul Reiche. And even if we did have rights to SC 1/2 I wouldn't touch them without his blessing."

The CEO believes fans "want a game with fun, adventure and top-down ship battles like in Star Control 2 that all play within a fun sci-fi universe. Preferably one with Ur-Quan and Spathi and lots of insults." So, that's the direction Stardock will ideally go in. You down?
