Hardly any information currently online relating to Elite 4 is true, Frontier boss David Braben has said.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com at a Nintendo press event to promote upcoming WiiWare and DSiWare games, including Frontier's own LostWinds sequel, Braben refused to confirm or deny various online chit chat relating to the hotly anticipated title, which was confirmed to be in existence a whopping eight years ago.

Elite 4 information is scarce. Unconfirmed online reports suggest it's an MMO, that it will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as PC, and that development will only begin once Frontier's The Outsider is completed.

Braben did, however, allay fears that Elite 4 may never see the light of day by confirming it is in development.

"There is absolutely tons of stuff about Elite online," he said. "Hardly any of it's true! Some of it is, but I'm not going to say which. We are working on it and it's very exciting."

So there you have it. Elite 4 is coming. When though, we'll just have to wait and see.
