Today publisher Atari announced that Cryptic Studios’ upcoming MMO Star Trek Online will hit North America on February 2.
According to Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari: “Star Trek Online is poised to become the ultimate Star Trek gaming experience. Throughout the last four decades, Star Trek has been a mainstay in pop culture, influencing legions of fans through television, film, and more. Star Trek Online opens a whole new chapter and expands upon this incredible universe in 2010.”
While I may not be the biggest Star Trek fan, much to the dismay of my girlfriend, I am interested in seeing how popular the game will be. In the past we’ve MMOs with big franchises tacked on to them like Star Wars Galaxies and Lord of the Rings Online. The thing is, these games tend to fall off the map after a few months. I am wondering if the hard core Star Trek fan base will be able to sustain this game, and for how long.
Do any of you guys plan on jumping into Star Trek universe? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
