Star Trek Online Boldly Staying PC Only

1 min read


Don’t be pulling your furrowed-brow Klingon faces at me, Star Trek Fans! I am just the messenger, the bearer of bad news.  Cryptic Studios have confirmed that Star Trek Online – expected to beam up to consoles – will now be staying put as a PC-only experience.

This follows news that the studio’s other MMO, champions online will also not be hitting consoles – painting a bit of a bleak future for MMO’s on consoles in general.

“Star Trek online is pretty much in the same boat as the Champions console version right now,” said Cryptic boss Jack Emmert.

“It’s something we can readily do in terms of technology. We’ve had it up and running on certain consoles, and had plans and designs in order to take advantage of those platforms. But as it stands right now it’s a little difficult to make that final leap on the business side of things.”

“So, currently, just like Champions, the console version of Star Trek Online is on the back burner.”

Fantasy Star Online and Final Fantasy XI managed it just fine – what’s keeping Cryptic from making similar deals? Regardless, the message is clear. Live long and prosper – just as long as you do it on your PC, mmkay?

    Bah! I really wish someone could make the definitive Star Trek game. You know the one that’s a bit like Mass Effect, where you play a character that very much resembles Captain Kirk (i.e. getting it on with the alien ladies, or kicking Romulan and Klingon ass, or just being a bad ass Captain of a starship), and you’re free to fly around in your Starship and visit planets, and beam down to the surface. Obviously, unlike Piccard and all the nabs that followed, you don’t have to worry about the prime directive, so if you want you can just set phasers “on kill”.

    I’d actually give my left nut for such a game.

    Hi I just now finished reading through your website and I’m quite impressed. I do have a couple of questions for you though. Are you planning on doing a follow-up posting on this? Are you going to keep updating as well? Additionally if you get an opportunity would you rate my own Rappelz guild web site whenever you get a chance?
