I believe what he has in mind will cost a fortune to set up, the servers alone will cost a fortune. He wants to implement something along the lines of Eve Online but on a grander scale. Including real trading and in-game advertising. A possible £1,000,000 a week earner if done tastefully.
However a recent interview had him talking down the MOSTG aspects and talking about 1-player experiences.
The longer he leaves it though, just like the Amiga name, the fewer people will remember Elite and the less money the Franchise will be worth.
