For the time being. According to recent press, David Braben is working on Elite 4. Very little is known about this, not even the final intended name. Ian Bell also reports an ongoing project on his homepage but gives no details. Maybe it's another Elite. Maybe not. Who knows?

Vague details on: Matt Dibb's page - http://www.hoopla.cwc.com/lotf/ Jades' Elite 4 page.

These aren't your only hopes, though. There are other games in the pipeline:


98.1) The Elite Project

98.1.1) What is it?

An attempt to write a single-player game with the feel and open- endedness of Elite. As a result of a recent debate on the likely stance of the original authors to copyright, no features copyrightable to Elite are going to be included, including the name. Provisional name: Stardreamer.

This game will be public domain.

98.1.2) How can I keep tabs on it?

See http://www.uni-leipzig.de/~troeger/tep/ for the most comprehensive list of links about.

The latest code is available from http://www-stu.cai.cam.ac.uk/~jaj22/tep/

98.2) The Galileo Project

98.2.1) What is it?

An attempt to write a multiplayer game with the open-endedness of Elite but the universe, scenario, technology and the like are all newly devised. Will be playable over the internet.

98.2.2) How can I keep tabs on it?

Via their website: http://www.galileo.base.org/

98.3) X

98.3.1) What is it?

A commercial space flight and combat sim that I am told "looks everything First Encounters could have been, brought up to date". I have yet to check out the webpage though I hear a rolling demo is available.

98.3.2) How can I keep tabs on it?

From the link off http://www.egosoft.com/, the company which is developing it.
