TfB is continueing on Skylanders and whatever.
Just temporarily with a decreased input from Fred and Paul.

They are doing this independently, as already announced in their very first blog post (which was published on the day SC2 got published 25 years ago).

They are so experienced now that I doubt it will be much of a problem to do it more or less by themselves.

They did SC2 all by themselves, except for some music.
So....

Of course they CAN.

Anyway: in one of the linked articles from theri twitter:
Quote from: Christian Today
[...] it will contain races from the predecessor game, such as Ur-Quan, Precursors, Super-Melee, Umgah, and more.
Who here ever knew the Super-Melee are a race?

Wait, just the two of them, seriously?

What's the rest of their company working on???
I think that this is the only way they could get Activision to let them do it.

They got a lot of help on art and writing too, and Greg Johnson was particularly important I think. Their bunker period at the end to finish the game wasn't the entire project.

Also they said they're "starting out" with the two of them on Twitter. While it certainly won't be a big-budget production, I'm sure they'll hire more help as needed. Skylanders has probably given them some money to work with.

Well except for the art, alien design, animation and much of the writing.

Star Control II had some legends on it.  A few examples:

Greg Johnson, who designed Starflight was on the project.

Iain McCaig worked on the game who later on went to design Darth Maul, Princess Amidala, characters for Harry Potter, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc.

Erol Otus who created the Zoq-Fot-Pik and is very well known for his work in fantasy and D&D.

Kyle Balda worked on the animation in Star Control II and went on to lead the animation on Monsters Inc. and most recently directed the Minions movies.

None of this takes away from Paul and Fred.  But I think it is fair to say that Star Control II's awesomeness was the result of a nexus of awesome talent.  Truly lightning in a bottle.
