X Rebirth Announced

EGOSOFT and Deep Silver announce X Rebirth, the next game set in the X Universe of space combat games, saying this will "transport the multi-award-winning series to another dimension with radically new game design and top notch graphics" upon release in the fourth quarter of this year. It seems this is the promised TNBT announcement, though that's not explicitly stated. The reveal trailer offers gameplay footage, and here's a bit on the game:

X Rebirth represents a spectacular new beginning for the X series, offering loyal fans and newcomers alike a vast, vivid and extremely detailed universe to explore throughout the game.

Varied gameplay elements such as action-packed space combat, detailed trading mechanics and high-speed space exploration with fast travel allow players to experience a truly unique space saga that will keep them hooked for dozens of hours.

What's wrong with there being a new space game? The genre is pretty neglected as it is, and these are one of the few developers still ballsy enough to make these kinds of titles.

Edit: Unless you were more referring to this just being another X game rather than something completely unique and abstract.

It's that they're making it another X game, rather than going in a completely different route. It was always known it'd be another space sim, since that's what those guys love to do, and that's what their substantial fanbase wants. But it would have been nice to see them just ditch everything to do with X and start over fresh.

Apparently it seems this is a reboot rather than a sequel but I wish they hadn't used the X brand again, since after X:TC they did mention the X universe was finished. Either way I loved the X series and will no doubt get this one, it does look quite pretty.
