iOS space combat and trading game Rogue Star out early 2015

Elite on iPad?

Premium iOS space combat and trading game Rogue Star launches early 2015 for iPhone and iPad.

Rogue Star is the work of indie developer James Duncan, who worked on Fable 2 and Fable 3 before quitting Microsoft-owned developer Lionhead to start up his own studio, RedBreast.

Duncan's original mission with Rogue Star was to re-ignite interest in the space combat and trading genre. Since the game's reveal in 2012, the genre has enjoyed a revival, with Chris Roberts' Star Citizen continuing to generate huge revenue, and David Braben's Elite: Dangerous out today.

Duncan is a big fan of the original Elite games, as well as Tie Fighter, Red Baron and Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe. Rogue Star aims to capture their spirit on mobile devices.

The new trailer, below, shows off Rogue Star's visuals. One to watch.
