Northstar? Not likely when there is a feedback/idea thread for SotS HD, posted by Kerb and that’s still active, whereas this is a dead zone. ;)

I agree, though I'm positive the idea is on ice, not quite flatlined. From the info and art already revealed it seems to be a thought-through concept and something Kerberos would love to develop.

This is why I definitely wouldn't want to poke it with a stick too often (though I'd love to) as I'm sure Kerberos wants to see it happen more than I do and being a PITA wouln't help anyone.

SotS HD is the way to go IMO, a well known and established franchise reborn. Far enough from SotS2, too. If it is a hit, who knows what ideas may yet come (back) to life.

Anyway, till next July! Not a schedule BTW, it seems the joy of summer kinda brings the game back into memory. :)

Oh, and here all this time I thought the first rule of the northstar is that we don't talk about how badly we wants the precious... precious... MY PRECIOUS....

Aaaand another two years. C'mon, Kerberos, you know you've gotta do it. Not even a choice with an idea this great. 🙂

actually what amuses me most is thinking back to the reaction to the crew choices we made...so many white dude gamers! so much underwear twisting! and they didn't even have the word "woke" to use a weapon! ;)

I didn't know there were reactions to the crew... What, too many humans? 😁

That's the default reaction to almost every space game nowadays. Everyone says they don't want to play the boring and bland humans...but then when you get game stats...that's practically all they ever play.

Happened in AOW Planetfall (everyone played the Vanguard), apparently in all the GalCiv games and I think Endless Space as well. People are quite contrary it seems.
If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.
