    Hmmm, wonder what this could be! :)

    From The Chairman:


    If youíve made it here, you probably know who I am. Maybe you have heard of Wing Commander and its sequels, or perhaps Strike Commander, Privateer or Freelancer.

    If not, youíre still welcome!

    I grew up making video games. I sold my first game at the age of 13 and created Wing Commander when I was 21. But 10 years ago, at the height of my career I took a break. Not because I stopped loving or playing games but because I had become frustrated with the limits of the technology at the time to realize my vision.

    I decided to pursue my desire to create detailed worlds and tell sophisticated stories in film.

    I always said the moment I became interested in making games again was when I was going to come back.

    With the power of todayís computers and the reach of the internet I finally feel I have the tools to build the connected experience that I always dreamed of. A world that would be more satisfying and richer than any film I could work on.

    With films you tell stories but with games you create worlds.

    If youíve played my games, youíll know thatís what I love to do.

    Iím here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level.

    I hope youíll be as excited by it as I am.

    My new endeavor is still in its early stages but I invite you to take the journey with me.

    If you register below youíll become an insider that will not only give you early access to the gameís website and forums, but you will also get the opportunity for rewards and privileges that no one else will get. Itís my way of showing how important your early involvement and support is.

    The full announcement will be at 10am Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) on the 10th day of the 10th month of this year.

    My name is Chris Roberts.

    And if you would indulge me I would like to create a world for you."
