No the should not, all the user made stories would be for nothing :-| IMHO the community dug too deep for the original author to have any right for continuing the canon story without consulting with all of us :D

Uh, no? IF they made FS3, there'd just be a canon ending (or continuation, hopefully just and ending) to the story. All user-made campaigns would be just fanfic. Which they already are.

Meh, you don't need to agree with me, it's just how I feel about it :) BTW if they'd kill for making FS3, why don't they just make it in their free time then? :P the SCP does that, and they're doing one heck of an awesome job. *nikelogo.png* Just do it!

Oh lord I wish so much this would happen.

And no I'm not worried about the usermades. They have their stories, FS3 would have its story.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
Yes. Which is why Volition can't just go ahead and make FS3 (Oh, and minor, purely commercial considerations like the fact that Spacesims are a de facto dead genre, EvE notwithstanding).

He was being sarcastic... I hope.

As for the article: I'm surprised he attributes FS's low sales figures to joysticks. Even before I bought FS2, I knew it would run with keyboard and mouse. I guess he didn't want to say "We didn't give a flying **** about advertising."

FS3 would be one of the best things to happen to the community IMO. If it stays on the PC, or has a console and PC Release, imagine the massive boost of a fan-base Freespace would get? More people, more modders, more campaigns, a professionally overhauled engine, ect ect... We probably wont get the scource code off the bat, but eh.

This x1000. I do not understand why people get all concerned about FS3 damaging the user-made campaigns.

Volition had nothing to do with FS2's advertising. Interplay, the publisher, dropped the ball on that. Volition and Interplay are very different entities.

Yeah, sounds like a bunch of horse**** to me. I've never played any kind of spacesim on a joystick, this has never degraded my enjoyment of the genre one bit.
People not knowing that he game actually exists at all is a bigger showstopper than "oh, I dont have a joystick"

Imo though, FS3 is only interesting to me if its focused good and proper for the PC. If its done mainly for the console, I know I'll just buy it, play it once and mostly likely never touch it again (no modding and all that).  Like project slypheed and wing commander arena

Honestly, FS3 would have a lot to live up to with the projects that are out for FSO.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't buy it, but that the bar is pretty high.

Yes, I'm aware of that. But certainly Volition saw what kind of advertising campaign Interplay pursued. I don't know why he doesn't call a spade a spade after 12-13 years.

Good question. Maybe they need to be nice to Interplay so they can get the IP back in a gift basket.

Thumbs up to Battuta. You don't bite the hand that might give you a Freespace IP.
