From the information I am seeing they are looking for at least a Q3 2009 at the earliest to a Q1 2010 release at the latest. That is what I am getting. Don't quote me on it but that is a reasonable time to wait for STO. I am optimistic.
Basically what I was thinking... I'm sure they would like it to be on the shelves for Christmas, but by then even if it's not, we will be close and have a solid release date to keep the dogs at bay.
Having worked for a game company that was bought out by Atari(Infogrames) I'm kinda worried. I've heard it all before, then the games were shelved and studio was shut down. and it was a profitable studio.
I hope it doesn't happen again, I really want to see this game be made.
GT or Bitmap Brothers I presume?
I'm really sorry to hear that, they were some of my favourite studios, and a massive part of the UK scene. The original Bitmap Brothers games on the Atari ST were awesome though. What was that on called that was a platformer with a kid who wore a black cap and sunglasses. Betty Boop was in it aswell for some reason. Awesome game that, I spent hours playing it, but its name escapes me at present.
All I can say is thank good it was Atari and not EA.
If EA comes knocking at your door slam it in thier face, they will ruin your game and company.
Cheers, and hope to see you soon with my 3 free months at city of Heros!
RIP Tabula Rasa!
Once again i say... Cryptic has gone downhill and i am expecting a dishonorable star trek online death. Expec the worst and hope for the best. But between you and i the best seems lieka quite far challenge as of now with their focus on a numbr of different mmo ips they "WANT" to work with. I think ST:O has been delayed far enough! Years for fact. We as Trek Fans cant keep hoping for something by people who may just be lying to us just to soften the blow.
