Chris Roberts Game Countdown?

The Roberts Space Industries Website features a timer counting down the seconds to a point about 30 days hence, and The Starport makes the case that this countdown will culminate in the reveal of a new game from Chris Roberts, as this seems to belong to Cloud Imperium Games, which Roberts' LinkedIn Profile indicates is a new "skunk works company / project" recently launched by the Wing Commander developer. The site speculates this will be something new in the vein of the Wing Commander/Freelancer/Privateer space combat universe, and they have a teaser image to support this. A slight complication is the indication that at one point this timer was to hit zero today, so it's been reset somewhere along the way. Thanks Verno.

All I want is a Privateer sequel that doesn't suck... oh and that lets me haul cargo... and contraband, in my own ship...

I think you'd be interested in Evochron Mercenary:

Tried it. It's as bad as the X series in that it suffers from a fairly bland, and sterile feeling game world.

Privateer felt epic mostly because of the world you played in. The newer games have better graphics, physics, and more features but they just lack in presenting a believable world to be a part of.
