Now here we are in 2008 and Elite fans can once again get their hopes up as Elite co-creator David Braben has just recently announced that Elite 4 will possibly see a release on the current generation game consoles, although he wouldn't be more specific as to exactly which ones. Speculation has already began brewing that Elite 4 would be a perfect fit for the WiiWare, Xbox Live Arcade, and Playstation Store download services, especially since Frontier already has one WiiWare game on the service with their Lost Winds title.

It's anyone's guess at this point as to whether or not Elite 4 will ever see the light of day, but at least now we know the project is at least still moving forward, albeit at a rather slow pace. We'll have more information on a possible WiiWare appearance of Elite 4 if it becomes available.
