Guys, all you need to know about FreeSpace 3 is what www.freespace3.com points at.

Clearly it should have been pointed at Freespace 3: The Search for Bosch

Not that I particularly disagree, but your rather definite statement here seems (at least for me) to beg the question: What is Freespace 3?

Re: No Interplay web presence
A Volition game with Jason Scott writing, IMO. But more likely the truth is that nothing can be FS3 - too much time has passed, people are in different places, there’s no way a new FS game would be designed the same way.

Any and every campaign set after FS2 is FS3. 

 
Re: No Interplay web presence
Think about it, how many people would be still here if the series had a conclusion? At least you wouldn't have any of post-Capella campaigns here.

Re: No Interplay web presence
Well, because Freespace changed over half of my lifetime, i would spend over a half of my money for it :D.

But i hope i do not need up to 600k $ for that, because then i think my husband would consider to send me right into a psychiatry if i do that only for the love to freespace :lol:

I can't remember where I read it but apparently Interplay sold the rights to FS at some point, only to rebuy them later. For that purchase I've seen the price of 7.5K float around.
But again: I can't remember where I've read it so who knows how much is true. But if it is that puts it within scope of many wallets.
(but I doubt it is true. :( )

seems a simple google would have turned up a source. from 2013 though

This is inaccurate. Interplay have always held the publishing and distribution rights to FS. Volition sold them the remaining rights that they held - That includes the rights to game assets, names etc.
$7.5k will not buy you the FS IP. Add at least 2-3 digits to the end of that.

Edit: A better question - What happens to the Freespace and Descent titles on GOG and Steam if Interplay go kaput? I'd hate to see them disappear from retail completely (that already happened with Descent for a while)
