The original 'Star Control' PC game was published by Accolade.
PC software and games company Stardock has secured the rights to the classic PC franchise Star Control. The company states that it intends to develop a new Star Control with development beginning sometime this year.
"We expect the new Star Control to come in the form of a reboot, similar to what Firaxis did with the XCOM series last year," said Brad Wardell, president and CEO of Stardock. "We are looking at Star Control II as a major source of inspiration."
The first Star Control game included options for melee or strategy gameplay set in a science fiction universe. Its sequel, Star Control II, expanded on the product as an adventure game and shooter.
