Is There a New Populous Game in Development? And is Insomniac Working on a Game Called Outernauts?

Some patent and resume digging by French site HardGamers has uncovered the very real possibility that Electronic Arts is bringing back from the dead one of its most treasured old properties: Populous.

Managing to access what looks to be an internal wiki for EA's marketing team (specifically projects involving its EA Partners program), they've uncovered mentions of a number of projects, most of them known, but two of them new.

One has the working title Outernauts, and is listed as the second joint venture between Resistance developer Insomniac and EA (the first being Overstrike).

The other is just called Populous. Populous of course being the world-altering God Game that got Fable creator Peter Molyneux his big break, which EA inherited when it bought Molyneux's old Bullfrog studio back in the 1990s.

With the marketing material in question having since been taken down, note that at this stage the information is unconfirmed.
