Tron 3 is cancelled, so no popularity boost from that.

They will release it in 25 years when we have full on virtual reality movies.

Are you sure it will take that long? :P I read somewhere that the number of moviegoers is declining again, in spite of the 3d technology that came with "Avatar". 25 years seems like a timespan in which even Arma can become VR-compatible if development continues.

Maybe the root of all inactivity is something completely different and it's just sourceforge's fault?

Is this the version of virtual reality, the version that we get AI implanted into our brain, so all the feeling is the same and we can watch/ feel from all viewpoints?

That's alright, we still have AdventuresOfTron.com, ArmaNelgTron.tk, Durf.cf, Lightron.org to name a few
None of which include a blog, but we still have these forums and the wiki. Written by the users for the users ;)

A few weeks ago, I saw lots of ID tech students playing in the servers. They're still around.
