Star Trek Online Prod Sez It’s ‘Kicking Butt’
You might think that MMOs are a wounded beast, industry-wise. You might also think that Star Trek, being a somewhat exhausted Franchise, would make for a difficult success in MMO format. You would, apparently, be wrong, at least according to Star Trek Online Producer Daniel Stahl. Over on the official site, while acknowledging the challenges facing MMOs of late, he crows that STO is doing rather well.
“When you consider what it takes to run an MMO in today’s highly competitive marketplace, STO has been kicking some butt. Despite what some may think, we have a deliberate path and long-term goals that we’ve been tracking quite well against. STO has not only survived, but is thriving at a time when many MMOs have kicked or are about to kick the bucket.”
Well, good for them. He also had a lot to say about the state of the game in general, and it’s all worth a read. In the meantime, are you playing? Is it actually kicking butt? Or is it Voyager meets Enterprise? Sound off in comments.
