According to the german website gamona.de, there is an Outcast remake in the works. They interviewed Franck Sauer from Daoka.
"And what happens to your project Fresh Engine now that you are at Daoka? Sauer: "Fresh3D is still the owner of FreshEngine. And right now we are analyzing and porting the original Outcast code to FreshEngine."
"Now, I'm not sure if a new Outcast product comes out it will bare the Daoka name, but it's not important. What's important is the people, and our willingness to have the Outcast universe coming back to its roots."
