It's pretty obvious to me that the Ancient will only appear under the form of artefacts such as the Knossos.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

The Shivans being a 'symptom of a bigger problem' and the Ancients 'playing a bigger role' doesn't mean we'll be fighting super uber duper evil faction and/or the ancients.

It could be as simple as the third game following some of the promo bits for the FS2 plot: the GTVA has scouted out the expanse of the ancient's empire and all ships have returned but one... *dum dum dum*

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

They really should ask us first.

I lol'd.

I don't know of a single game company who consults with fans before changing the storyline.  Volition is likely no exception.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
if volition were really serious about wanting to release FS3, they could lend a hand to HLP in upgrading the engine and "leak" ultra secret "if we get the IP back" story and ship designs to select members of HLP so it could be developed.

Wow where did this sense of entitlement come from?

"They really have no right to make a story without consulting us?"

Their story. Their rights. I trust them to do a good job, their 2 for 2 on that so far.

If they were planning to do more than 2 games from the start, i think they already have a story locked up somewhere. The problem with that thing is that interplay has to key to unlock it, until then :v: has to keep quiet about it.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
In order for this to be made, a reasonable return on any investment would have to be predicted. I see two possibilities if this were to happen:

Small Scale: PC Only release. Basically, a smaller team builds FS3. Smaller team means a smaller investment. Since the genre has a perceived small audience, making a smaller investment would match and be a safer bet. The benefit to us would  be a game that catered to what we like, as opposed to mass market appeal. This option would more likely yield mod tools as well, because a smaller investment by the powers at be would mean that extra time/money being spent on tools that have more value in the small audience they targeted could result in more sales. Downside is the potential for a smaller campaign/game with a limited investment.

Large Scale, AAA title: This kind of investment would require the largest audience possible. Any game with big funding needs big profit, so I simultaneuos release of both PC and console versions would make the most financial sense. Less complex controls would occur, as console controller compatibility would be a requirement. That could turn out to be a good thing, depending on how creative V gets. Plus side to us: Potentially Long campaign, more players. Down side is that mod tools will lose value as a large portion would not have any access to them, meaning time and money spent will not equal the same return on the investment.

Re: Volition: 'We'd Kill To Make FreeSpace 3' on Nowgamer.com
So, what is going on here is the basic question of, will you love FS3 or will you hate FS3? (I believe this question was asked before)
Love it because you love the story and want to see what happens next.
Hate it because you have such high expectations that will never be met.
Personally I hate it, because because it wont be made by HLP. The only way I would love it is if they hired HLP members for their team, or input.

Kind of unrealistic, FL.

I honestly admit I have a (possibly unrealistic) fear of the SCP ending, or at least drastically shrinking in the event FS3 is made. I think the likely scenario would be that the FSU gets kicked into overdrive due to people wanting to play the originals to find out what happened, but want to play with better graphics.

Well, no matter what, HLP is and will be the greatest FS resource and community... I don't think that it would be "pushed down", especially if FS3 would not be easily moddable...and if it is, we just continue ;-)

My 2 cents...

FS3 just won't ever be made. The rights the Freespace are lost in limbo, not to mention that they are for an *unprofitable* genre.

I'm not saying you can't hope.. but just don't bet on anything ever happening.

With so many great mods around (*wink*Blueplanet*wink*) I don't know if FS3 is really needed.

As great as all these mods are, and don't get me wrong, they are absolutely BRILLIANT, there is always that nagging sensation in the back of my head saying 'its not canon'

Yeah, exactly.  No matter how it would turn out quality-wise, there's a part of me that will always want to see how :v: would have continued the story.
