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.
