Whoa, FINALLY we know where this beloved IP ends up (thanks to Polygon for the story). Apparently Interplay, the original publishers of the two Freespace games, just purchased the IP from THQ and Voition a couple of days ago for $7,500. Yup, that’s it. $7,500. What they’ll do with this IP is a dang mystery, but one can only freaking HOPE this leads to a Freespace 3 at some point.
Then again, Volition developed the two games, Interplay published them. If there WAS to be a Freespace 3, who would develop it? It’d be weird to see such a beloved property end up in someone else’s hands rather than the original developers, but it’s worked successfully before (SWAT 4 anyone?).
What do y’all think Interplay will do with the Freespace IP now they they got their paws on it for a song?
