Well according the the guys at Red Brick this is a planned RPG something like several thousand years after Shadowrun. LIke a Shadowrun/Earthdawn space opera.

Looking forward to this.

Well according to red Brick they are stilll sorting out the kinks in the sysytem but the setting is preety much fleshed out.

Here the link

Basically somehow, in the future, Mankind manage to find a way in delaying the coming of the Horrors but of course plans go awry it goes to a hell on a handbasket.

Oh yeah, for those interested in Earthdawn, the Cathay sourcebook is finally coming out in Dec. 2010

Maybe they'll finally have some stats for the Cathay dragons.

Well, the "Equinox" project is progessing very slowly, i remember that i first saw information on that game 1 year and a half ago. The only difference in that amount of time is one or two paragraphs added.

RedBrick employs a small team only, which also works on Earthdawn 3 and/ or Fading Suns 3, what makes the slow progress on Equinox no big surprise (developing a whole new setting including mechanics is an awful amount of work).

Yep, I predict Equinox will be out in 2011. Probably end of 2011.

Their major projects are done so they can focus on Equinox.

Not quite - Fading Suns 3 is still in development and work on new books for Earthdawn continues as well. Would be awesome if Equinox were the only project RedBrick works on, though.

Then they blow up the Earth to keep the Horrors from returning ever again.

The thing that I'm really looking forward to in Equinox?  Dragons in power armor.  For.  The.  Win.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Actually the Earth gets destroyed n the process of trying to take it back.

That takes some serious magic.

The Horrors are still there though. And the Consortium leadership is said to be corrupt(by horror?)

Yup. High level magic called "the red button"  ;D

About dragons, elves and so, have you seen anything ? no mention in what I've read. I can understand it since most if not all dragons might be dead - unles they found a way to travel in space - and metagenes might not express in space's mana void, but assuming they made a "sequel" to shadowrun and earthdawn's universe, with magic and so, they might have kept em.
Me am french, me am not speaking good english, but me am trying to correct this.

Actually, the ships in the Equinox are said to be flying through Astral space, meaning that we'd somehow corrected the Mana Void issue.

Magic level rose far enough for Mana to finally fill up space?
