Veteran game designer Chris Roberts is finally returning to his roots after going the Hollywood route with a project called Roberts Space Industries (RSI). The details are scant at this point but there are strong indicators that this project will combine elements of what made Roberts' previous efforts worthwhile experiences. "Truly hardcore space simulation fans from around the world to celebrate the genre and remind them what made Wing Commander, Privateer, Starlancer and Freelancer great!" While Roberts has been working on the title for a year now, it won't be coming out anytime soon, although an October announcement is expected on his website. Which is just about time. A massive black hole has been inhabiting the space sim market lately, and the PC needs another epic space opera boost from Roberts, which, given his track record on creating superb games, is capable of delivering."I’m here to tell you that I have been working on something for just under a year, something that embraces everything that my past games stood for but takes it to the next level," said Roberts. "I hope you’ll be as excited by it as I am."
