Elite IV still on its way

Although it's currently on hold

In a statement that made many veteran gamers sigh with relief, David Braben has confirmed that he and Frontier are still committed to producing Elite IV.

Elite creator Braben told Eurogamer that the game was in pre-production but has been put on hold due to staffing changes at Frontier.

He said: "We don't comment on rumours. There have been recent staff changes on the project, and our commitment to the game is as strong as ever."

The game has been connected with PC and console versions although it is still in pre-production so anything is possible.
