Is Microsoft planning a Freelancer MMO reboot?

An anonymous reader writes "An apparently internal early-days video of a stress test of a not-yet-seen space MMO called "Age of Ascent". Whilst I've never heard of the company making the game, what's interesting is that a google search shows a (now pulled) page titled "Welcome to the Microsoft Internal Beta", and mentions a "world record attempt".

The guy in the video says "6 million messages per second at 1% capacity" at one point, there are "Powered by Windows Azure" logos everywhere, and the twitter feed (visible at the end of the clip) is still up, reading 5,000 concurrent players. In realtime. And with direct piloting.

Anyone know anything?"
