About Interplay.....
If Interplay went Bankrupt, where would their license for FS franchise go? Also, if they so low on cash, why not sell the FS Franchise to some other company?

Re: About Interplay.....
Surely the release of the "source" code means that the licencse went freeware?

Re: About Interplay.....
Then why doesnt someone make a definite sequel for the FS series? A LOT of questions went unanswered. and the developers had a story set out. If the developers released the story, then someone can make a sequel. The developers have proved their "story writing" abilities. If they released the story...The Open-source community or another developer can take up the project to make a definite sequel....
Volition/THQ is definetely still active. They are developing Saint's Row for the X360. They are the creators for this game. If anyone knows someone from Volition, can you ask them for the story they developed for FS3... Or maybe try to persuade them to make a FS3? It would definetely be awesome for a new FS game with a brand-new engine with physics and Next-gen graphics. Not limited by 1024x768.
Im gonna try to write a letter to them. I suggest you try too.

Re: About Interplay.....
If Interplay went bankrupt, the license would sold off to the highest bidder in order to raise money to pay creditors, etc (or possibly be given to a creditor, I think it depends).  Interplay may very well be trying to sell the license, but it'd be hard to find a company wanting to spend money on a 7 year franchise whose last installment did badly at the tills, when it'd probably be as easy to develop a new IP (not to mention that the genre itself is rather stagnant).

 
Re: About Interplay.....
everyone says it did badly, but almost no one mentions why it did badly. And as I recall that was Interplay's fault, not FS2's.

I was talking about Interplay's horrible marketing actually.

Re: About Interplay.....
What i mean is that if everyone wrote to Volition, (Interplay has too much on their hands to respond with help). They might still have the storyline they might have developed somewhere. If they not going to use it, might as well post it here or send it to one of us who could post it here? That really would be awesome. I have emailed them and am writing a Snail Mail. The Snail Mail is more likely to be read by them.

Maybe even call em. That would infact be awesome if they reci8eved 100 calls within 2 days asking for the storyline they developed.
EDIT: They say they "Dont give out information like that".
Maybe im just not a good talker. Everyone, call them now please

Re: About Interplay.....
IIRC, it was said that Volition did not have a clear cut story for a third installment.

Regardless, this is futile. They wont give us it, if it did exist, and to a point, most of us dont really want it. It takes away the fun of us envisioning our own future/demise. Of course this is, and shall always be my own humble opinion.

I suggest you read the general section of my FAQ pretty quickly. I've covered a lot of this stuff in there.

Re: About Interplay.....
Lol. I actually would want the storyline. If it didnt come out as a game, its not official and i dont have to beleive it.

For FS3, Bosch must shurely return (with some info to make us suck up to him..)

Re: About Interplay.....
I'd heard somewher that Interplay had already sold the rights to Freespace, though to whom I have no idea....

I agree with Raa in a sense, I don't want to know about the enigma surrounding the Shivans but I wouldn't mind seeing a small expansion to Freespace2. Otherwise this is a seriously ancient topic :nod:

Re: About Interplay.....
I know a lot of people out here want an official fs3, and even the people who don't want it would enjoy having the story for it a lot.
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.

I don't care what those campaigns that started a million years ago and will finish in abillon ( :( ) will say if there will be an FS3. They can continue FREDing for all I care. I'd rather have 1 new engeine, bug free, voice acted, stable, awesome game, than 10+ WIPs.
