NEWS: Ghosts of the Precursors is coming!
« on: October 10, 2017, 02:57:59 am »

Greetings!

I have good news!

Our (you guys and us) have had our wishes granted:  Paul and Fred are returning to create a true sequel to The Ur-Quan Masters called Ghosts of the Precursors.

You can read their announcement here: https://dogarandkazon.squarespace.com/

This will be an independent effort outside of Activision (or Stardock) and ignores Star Control 3.

Waaaaait. They say it'll include Mmrnmhrm and Chmmr, but they don't mention Chenjesu.

And apparently the Thraddash survived.

Or possibly, all that just refers to the Supermelee feature, and they left Chenjesu out because they weren't being comprehensive.

Suddenly my MegaMod idea doesn't seem so silly after all.

You guys think this will kick off another burst of development for UQM?

Here to show my support. I grew up on SC2 - it helped me learn that living in a multicultural universe is the only way to save humanity. It is a timely lesson, even (especially?) today.

Thank you Toys for Bob, for helping me grow into a better hunam than I would have been without your inspired work. I wish you well on your latest project for SC3 and will support you!

I sure hope so.
But we'll have to see if and what the result will be.
Possibly FF and PRiii will ask the community for support again.

What if... there was more than one Mother Ark?



EDIT: But the best part in my opinion is that it sounds like we'll be able to meet the Keel-Verezy! \o/

They might just be mentioned once again, by our favourite Mael-Num trader.

I question whether a mere mention is enough to say they'll be included, but I guess...

Just remember, it is currently still "Very early stage".
So it will be a while before we might get to see any results.

Regarding the scope of this project, I found these tweests:
these tweets say it all:
Quote from: Fan Question
@Dogar_And_Kazon I keep reading that TfB will not be part of this game. Is Activision letting you guys do this on the side?
Quote from: @Fred and Paul
Yes.  The game is starting as the previous ended, 25 years ago, with just the two of us.
Quote from: @Fred and Paul
As TFB grew, we became further and further removed from development.  We have missed that and thought this a good way to return.

So, do not hope for a big Activision budget for our anticipated sequel...

That's reassuring to me. It means there won't be any publishers getting in the way of the possibility of a libre release. And who really needs fancy high-end graphics anyway?
