Re: New Crusader Game?
I dont know, Codenames mean nothing in most cases, and even if crusader had a good critic score, I think its not one of the most acclaimed franchises.

I'm just saying you know ^^

Sounds to me as if they are going to make a Wing commander or Privateer sequel.

It's most likely a new Wing Commander... but we can hope! Tongue

Re: New Crusader Game?
Given that Starbreeze is most famous for FPS games, it could be a Crusader title. However, there's also a chance that it might be a revival of System Shock as well.

Re: New Crusader Game?
BioShock was massively overhyped. Check out Yahtzee's review of it... It's so perfect:

I think here will be System Shock 3. Looking at Bioshock success, EA won't lose such opportunity to make something similar to gain more money.

I do not think WC will be the next title. SpaceSims are not very popular our days unfortunately. But I also really hope it will be Crusader.

Re: New Crusader Game?
I also agree it won't be Wing Commander.  Arena didn't do so well.

System Shock 3 is a big possibly...but the Redlime thing makes me hopeful it's Crusader.

Either way, this could quite possibly be ten kinds of awesome.  Not one.  Not two.  Not four.  Ten.

Re: New Crusader Game?
Well, I think Wing Commander already got its "revival" with Arena. I'd be glad if they are going to develop a new Crusader game, but in all honesty I agree with those who think it's gonna be a System Shock game.

Besides Wing Commander System Shock is probably one of the most notable titles in Origin's closet and given Starbreeze experience with FPS games...

Concerning the Codename: "red" sure has something to do with Crusader, but "lime"? I can't think of a link with our beloved Crusader...

The Silencer always chose the "Lime" flavor on the soda machines.
