No sequel for Star Trek Online

Star Trek Online developer Cryptic has ruled out the possibility of it releasing a sequel to the game in future years - telling CVG it would rather constantly update its existing MMO.

The title was released on PC back in February to mixed reviews - but has remained popular with fans.

However, Cryptic executive producer Craig Zinkievich told CVG this week that the studio won't release a follow-up to the title.

He said: "I'm not really sure it makes sense to create a sequel in the MMO market. Typically, you see an MMO called a sequel because either a new team worked on the property or the original team wanted to reboot their IP.

"With Star Trek, the beauty is the story is never really finished, so as the IP continues to grow, so can we. Barring a new edition of our engine, I can't really see us doing a sequel."
