From their announcement:
Fantasy Flight Games is delighted to announce the upcoming release of Merchant of Venus, a fantastic new edition of a classic 1980’s board game of space traders and alien riches. Two to four players race through the galaxy on a wild dash for cash, locating and establishing vital trade lines to transport goods from the planets where they’re common, to the planets where they can sell for maximum profit. The trader with the most wealth wins. We’re excited to announce that Fantasy Flight Games will release Merchant of Venus in the first quarter of 2012 and we are now accepting pre-orders.
