I remember back at the guild summit when some dev said he played the "new space combat" and that the "secret space project" was being worked on. That it was in alpha and "fun" and that it would "blow our minds".
So it was in alpha about half a year ago and apparently far along enough that it was playable to the point of being fun.
There has been no videos, no discussion, no dev comments that gave any detail as to what they mean by "new space combat" but have assured us that the new 10 rail shooters are "not it".
See, when trion talked about their pocket dimensions... They showed it. They even said "this is alpha so a lot will change". It was a fraction of what they hope it will become... But they allowed us to know what they are working on.
When blizzard says they are working on something, they usually give a description of what it will be. Even if it is some what vague, its not completely devoid of information.
This goes beyond "they don't want to promise something that they might have to change" or "they are afraid of promising dates".
I don't believe it exists.
I think it was a PR band-aid to make up for the condescending "han solo and chewie didn't go dicking around in space" debacle.
I think that there was no space 2 in alpha 6 months ago.
There might be something in the works right now, but I doubt it.
I was waiting for space 2 this entire time. Since they can't produce a single 1 minute clip of a supposedly playable game as of 6 months ago I can't wait any longer. I wanted to wait till December but the 10 rail shooter missions have really shit on my hope that this could be a holistic star wars game.
