does anyone know if there doing one? personally i think they would be stupid not to since its still very popular, its probably the single best game microsoft have made.
I havee never even gotten into the first game, only because I just never picked it up. I heard it's amazing.. and I bet you they are making a sequel since it did (and IS doing) so well.
There's actually been a lot of deliberation over a Freelancer 2 for years, but so far no one has managed to dig up one hint that so much as infers that it exists.
I'd certainly like to see one, albeit more evolved than the first. The X-Universe games are great, but the fact that they have no multiplayer like Freelancer does leave a good amount to be desired in the way of space sims.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Last I heard, Digital Anvil had been completely dissolved by Microsoft and its employees sent off to various other projects around MGS. Which would make a sequel unlikely, I think. At least, it would make a good sequel unlikely anyway. So much for the 'small team' ideology they espoused in their early days...
I did not really like the first one..... not enough RPG elements I suppose...
