Gameforge Cancels Star Trek: Infinite Space
Bad news for all us Star Trek fans—Gameforge has canceled its in-development MMO, Star Trek: Infinite Space as of today. Said a statement from the German game publisher:
“Since autumn 2011 we made many efforts to find a publishing and marketing partner for Star Trek: Infinite Space. Unfortunately, our efforts were not successful. So we have decided with a heavy heart to finally abandon the project Star Trek: Infinite Space. The discontinuation is very regrettable. Unfortunately it happens from time to time that a good concept for a game cannot be implemented as originally planned.”
What a goddamn bummer. I guess it’s hard to find financial and creative help for a game based on a universe that, y’know, kind of doesn’t exist anymore (at least not in the minds of Paramount, I assume, since the series was rebooted in J.J. Abrams’s movie).
While I hadn’t gotten the chance to play the game at all, Lawrence’s preview from last September definitely got my Trek senses tingling.
Damn the Prophets. I blame the Cardassians.
