X-Wing, TIE Fighter Revivals Teased by LucasArts Prez

If you could measure the weight of a mysterious tease in dots, one dot representing no possibility and five representing metaphysical certitude, LucasArts president Darrel Rodriguez may have just confirmed an upcoming X-Wing/TIE Fighter-related release. When asked in a recent G4TV exchange whether the classic flight sim series might reappear, Rodriguez's keys got rather sticky.

"We don't have any announcements now, but stay tuned," he wrote in an email. "We will soon....."

Steam re-releases of the titles would seem likely given the company's recent dedication to the platform. A more ambitious project along the lines of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition would seem less likely, but far more exciting.
