FreeLancer 2 to Feature No Controls Whatsoever Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

In a surprise move last night, Microsoft issued the following statement: "We want to let the gaming public know that we have heard their pleas. Response to the original FreeLancer was overwhelming - and as we gauged fan reaction, we found that the single underlying issue was with the mouse based interface. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that FreeLancer 2 will feature absolutely no control mechanism of any kind."

The original FreeLancer was developed without any provision for a flight stick mode, in the hopes of appealing to a gaming public that by and large regards such hardware as the domain of only 'hard core' flight sim players. FreeLancer 2's take is even more daring - but if successful, it could cater to the huge percent of the buying public which no longer has a joystick, mouse or keyboard.

Pictured below is an artists rendering of what a computer optimized for the new FreeLancer title will look like:

Industry watchdog groups agree that an entirely non-interactive game is a unusual risk - but, as one insider pointed out, it can't suck any harder than those Freespace games.
