Star Trek Infinite Space Axed

Star Trek Infinite Space 2

Some bad news for Star Trek gamers. Star Trek: Infinite Space, Gameforge’s browser-based starship combat simulator, has been officially cancelled.  In truth, it’s no surprise to anyone, as the developer had been experiencing a number financial setbacks and layoffs over the past year. In order to complete development, Gameforge had been seeking a co-publisher for the title, but according to a recent statement, has finally given up the search. As we had previously reported, the game had been originally scheduled for release in late 2011.

It’s a shame really. I had been looking forward to giving it a try, and while I generally question the quality of browser-based games, every screenshot and trailer for the game looked impressive enough. I have to wonder how much money and effort had been invested in its development, and I’d love to know how far that development had progressed. Sadly, the world may never know.
