No but I found myself grinning like a maniac.Did you cheer along with the rest when momentous things such as door hatches were opened?

Plus.. anything they do now would pretty much be directly competing against Squadron 42.
Hopefully one day... they bring back pretty much every franchise so I wouldn't be surprised... what I'm REALLY surprised by is there still isn't a successor to freespace 2
May happen but the poor sales of FS2 killed dev interest in it.
As at 2014 (source: http://www.pcgamer.com/freespace-tablet ... c-release/)
And that's the derail.The Freespace games, particularly Freespace 2, were tremendously good space combat simulators. We scored it 93/100 in our January 2000 review, and developer Volition, now known for the Saints Row series, admitted a few years ago that it would kill people for the chance to make Freespace 3. In an odd twist, the Freespace IP actually went back to Interplay last year for just $7500, but it's not the company it used to be, and so excitement over that development was somewhat muted.
A new, official Freespace project entitled Freespace Tactics actually hit Kickstarter a few days ago, which very briefly raised my eyebrows until I realized it's not for a videogame, but for a tabletop miniatures game "inspired by" the series. I prefer my Freespace with a joystick, but the team behind the game has said that there is actually a videogame connection, of sorts.
"Part of why we are doing with this project is to gauge interest in the FreeSpace universe," FreeSpace Development Corp., the creator of the Kickstarter, wrote in the comments. "If this is successful, it will certainly help us get a couple steps closer to a new PC game."
Cynical readers might see it as not-overly-subtle way of building support for this project by tying it to the fate of something that people very much want, and the crowdfunding success of Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen would seemingly make a new Freespace videogame a sure thing. Of course, the question of whether or not Interplay could put together the resources to make such a game looms large: Its most notable actions over the last few years include losing a high-profile legal battle with Bethesda, resurrecting the Black Isle name (although the website at blackisle.com appears to have gone offline), and, mostly recently, shutting down a fan remake of the original Descent.
And I suspect it will be the best one, much like Galaxy Quest is the best Star Trek movie and The Incredibles is the best Fantastic Four movie.
I believe EA own the rights to WC anyway. Still want it?
But there really are a lot of keys... Any simplifying in that area is a good thing.

Im hungry for good space opera, doesn't need to specifically be Wing Commander, but that's definitely an old near and dear title to me.Honestly this is possibly better than a new WC game anyway... I pledged hoping it'd reach its target and now obviously I'm gonna get a lot more for that cash...

I can finish a racing game in automatic with full assists but that won't be competitive online, I expect something analogous here. The scripted nature of single player will help further.
