Stardock Entertainment, the company has announced today. Paxton, a prominent Civilization 4 modder and Firaxis Games consultant before joining Stardock as a lead designer in 2010, will take charge of the games division and oversee all games development from here on out at Stardock.
A few months back, Stardock announced it was pursuing a Star Control reboot. Star Control, which was auctioned off by Atari in July, is a space combat series created by developer Toys for Bob in 1990 about two alien alliances locked in a brutal war.
Stardock will announce its next slate of games this October, when the company celebrates its 20th anniversary. We anticipate news of the new Star Control will be among them.
