No and yes. We are, apparently, too small a group to warrant a market for SC4(3?) now. But it is still possible someday.

Maybe they can revisit the idea once the undoubtedly ongoing Skylanders project is under control and the majority of TFB's staff don't have to devote their full attention to it.

I don't know, I think all of us would be pissed if Activision decided it wanted to make SC4 (you know, a sequel to SC3), including FF&PR. And calling a new sequel to SC2 "Star Control 4" would be confusing. Even using a plain subtitle without a number would be better.

Honestly, I don't know what you're talking about. There! Was! No! Star! Control! Three!

Exactly why there shouldn't be a sequel to it.

It would be less of a waste of effort to make a new game called Turd Wars.

Personally I could stomach it if they had to stick the races of SCNot3 in somehow only if it was part of some agreement to make a SC3, I trust FF and PRIII would come up with some creative way to explain it whilst brushing it off as discontinuity. I maintain the view though that it's better for all of us if SCNot3 was forgotten, how such a poor game rode on the back of a good one and garnered top shelf reviews back in the day is just..

By which case at least we'd be getting a SC3 but I'd have a sour face stuck as to what would go on. It's like PR3 and FF would be forced to accept a fanfiction as canon- a horrible prospect and insulting.

A think a simple "Star Control" for the new title will do.

Nonsense. It's still not as bad as SC3.

With the recent Tim Schafer success with the whole Kickstarter graphic adventure title, it might be worth a push for a 4th game on there.

Realise this was a while ago (and I haven't been around in like 3 years) but was wanting to reinforce this point.

Kickstarter is making a HUGE difference to the way small companies are doing business. Anyone with a good idea which is legitimately marketable gets like 15x their required amount of 'donations'.

TFB is owned by Acti which is as quite a few people have said why they have little control over their project control. IF however (and maybe its a huge if) there were considerable evidence of marketability via a large Kickstarter response from SC2 fans then maybe Acti would give them free reign to produce a worthy successor.

And even if Acti DIDNT release TFB to produce a successor the Kickstarter support would allow TFB to create a new company and produce anyway. Maybe Toys for Blob?

There is also Steam Greenlight.

Games like the original Worms are getting onto Steam now, a game like this could do well.
What better place to get a PC Game going, than the most popular PC game platform available

Even David Braben is using the Kickstarter website for the next version of Elite

I wonder how much could be raised for a new Star Control?

In recent TfB news:  http://www.gamespot.com/news/over-100-million-skylanders-toys-sold-6403581

Their latest Spyro games are a huge success, as the real life toys interact with the video game.  Kids must be going crazy for them.

This could mean one of two things for those of us hoping for a true SC sequel someday;  Either the success over at TfB is going to force SC further out of Paul and Fred's priorities to the point where a sequel remains a pipe dream, or they could somehow leverage this success over at Activision to finally get them to try a bit harder to make this happen.

Time will tell.  When it comes to this, I refuse to ever give up hope.
