Yesterday, several sources such as Eurogamer and Joystiq were reporting layoffs at Gameforge, the folks making the Star Trek-based browser game, Star Trek: Infinite Space. Reports state the layoffs at around 100 people, and I personally hope they all find jobs soon. Regardless, there’s now a note on the Infinite Space site regarding the state of the game, that states:
What that means for the game is that the plans for the Beta are currently on pause until further notice while we explore the options for a co-publishing partnership. For the time being, nothing will change. When we know for sure what the future holds for us, we will keep you informed.
I’ll totally be keeping an eye on this story for any updates. Hopefully Gameforge can get things settled and move onto making a great Star Trek game.
