Stardock teases upcoming Windows 8-based product

Stardock has enjoyed a huge success with its Start8 Start menu program for Windows 8. A few weeks ago, the company launched a new version with many new features and said it had over three million downloads of Start8 so far. Stardock has also launched the Windows 8 wallpaper program Decor8 and this week it launched the first non-beta version of DeskScapes 8.

So what's next for Stardock in the Windows 8 arena? The company's CEO Brad Wardell revealed today in a post on the Elemental message boards that Stardock does have something else up its sleeve. He stated:

This is going to be a big thing next week but Stardock has a killer app for Windows 8 that’s being announced and made available next week. Start8 continues to grow in popularity, I think this new app will be at least as popular.

Wardell also revealed today that Stardock used the money it received from GameStop in the sale of its Impulse PC game download service in 2011 "to create a fund to help launch new start-ups." However, there's no word on what these new companies will be like, with Wardell stating, "We haven’t announced any of these new entities yet and won’t be for awhile."
