Guys, I still have the full compliment of 2_rivers mods, maps and all that good stuff. If that will help, I can definitely donate them to the cause.
I'm so excited about this happening, I can't tell you.

It didn't get much attention on Digg. The biggest surge surely came from SomethingAwful.com (thus Goon Haven).

People! What about distribution through steam? I'm sure that they wouldn't mind to introduce a classic to the wide community

He's not being a stubborn skeptic ass, he's expressing his (well founded) doubts of the likelihood of such an endeavour coming to pass.
Because the game is a well established classic and the franchise is under ownership of a current Steam publisher partner (Hi-Rez), the game wouldn't have to go through Greenlight to be approved, which is a plus. However, because the franchise is owned by Hi-Rez, it would require explicit permission and involvement from them in order to be released on Steam at all.
Without the opportunity for financial gain, there is little to no incentive (aside from redeeming themselves in the hearts and minds of Tribes fans everywhere) for them to even give such a project consideration... let alone invest the marginal sum required to develop an update substantial enough to warrant purchasing the game when a free release exists -- as selling the game without a significant update would be seen as a major faux pas in the eyes of the community.
Sure it could be released on Steam as a free game if Hi-Rez were agreeable, but even then there are a number of changes that would need to be made for it to be distributed.
But hey, if you can convince Hi-Rez to give me permission, the T2 source code, and access to the Steamworks systems for my account, I'd be happy to do it.

There's nobody from Dynamix working at GG that I can think of,
