Many fans of the Descent and Freespace series have been wondering what is to become of these franchises in the aftermath of Volition's acquisition by THQ. Mike Kulas, the CEO of Volition, has posted an article on his company's Web site detailing what he expects the future will hold for its creations. Kulas states that as Interplay retains ownership of both licenses, any plans for further sequels lie with them and not Volition.

The two titles Volition is currently working on, Summoner and Red Faction, will be unaffected by the deal and will be published by THQ as planned.
