Star Trek Online: No Sequel

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Star Trek: Online developer Cryptic has said that there will be no sequel to Star Trek: Online in the future.

The popular game will instead be updated as it is needed. “I’m not really sure it makes sense to create a sequel in the MMO market,” explained Craig Zinkievich, executive producer for Cryptic. “Typically, you see a MMO called a sequel because either a new team worked on the property or the original team wanted to reboot their IP.

“With Star Trek, the beauty is the story is never really finished, so as the IP continues to grow, so can we. Barring a new edition of our engine, I can’t really see us doing a sequel.”
