Cryptic has said that it doesn’t have any plans to release a sequel to its Star Trek MMO in the future.

Instead, it would rather continue to support the one it has out now.

Speaking with CVG, producer Craig Zinkievich said that it just doesn’t “make sense” to introduce a sequel in the MMO market.

“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,” he offered.

“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.”

Star Trek was released in February, and it has Klingons, Tribbles, and the Borg.

The console version of the MMO was recently revealed to have been suspended.
