Could a Freelancer sequel be in the works?

Chris Roberts, famous for the Wing Commander, Privateer and Freelancer games, has come out of hiding and is apparently back in the game development business! After his stint as a movie producer (The Punisher, Lord of War, etc.) he's now provided a teaser in the form of a letter to his fans. Apparently more will be revealed on the 10th of October but some interesting points:

  • Chris Roberts was a successful game developer at a young age - that makes me sad :(.
  • Chris Roberts reckons that the "power of today's computers and the reach of the internet" means he can finally work on the "connected experience" he always dreamed of. Does this mean he's going to be making an MMO?
  • I like it how he recycles Origin's tagline: "We create worlds."
  • The spiel comes off like a presidential election speech :P.
