Bethesda: No New Star Trek Game
Pete Hines confirmed this news with FiringSquad but added, “Really interested in seeing the movie though. If anyone can make that movie awesome, it would be J.J. Abrams.”
Hines dealt another blow to Star Trek fans by confirming that Bethesda’s sister company ZeniMax Online Studios would not be picking up the Star Trek Online MMO abandoned by Perpetual entertainment.
“I don’t believe that is anything that we or ZOS is interested in or actively pursuing. “
As to whether there will be another game developed before the license runs out the only answer given was “TBD.”
Personally I think this comment by FiringSquad reader RedRay says it best:
Translation: We at Bethesda aren’t going to throw $10 million down a rat hole developing a game that will be crippled by non-programming nitwits at a movie studio mandating what we can and can not include in a game at the 11th hour of development for a movie that has at least a 50% chance of bombing at the box office.
