Cryptic Studios Finds Hope Amidst Uncertainty: A Future for Star Trek Online, Neverwinter, and Champions Online

In recent times, the MMO has been rife with concern regarding the fate of beloved MMORPGs: Star Trek Online, Neverwinter, and Champions Online. Amidst the turmoil surrounding Embracer Group’s financial struggles, and Cryptic Studios’ uncertain future, players have been on edge. However, a recent post from Cryptic CEO Phil Frazier on the Star Trek Online subreddit has offered a glimmer of hope to the worried fans.

Frazier’s message, while not overflowing with optimism, certainly cut through some of the doom and gloom. He confirmed that despite the ongoing transitions and the relocation of operations, there are no immediate plans to shut down any of the three games. This news comes as a sigh of relief to the community, which has been speculating about the potential end of their favorite virtual worlds.

The CEO elaborated on the studio’s efforts to maintain a “steady state” regarding content updates, particularly for Star Trek Online and Neverwinter, given Champions Online’s sporadic update history. While acknowledging the possibility of changes in the future, Frazier emphasized the goal of keeping the games alive and thriving under the new management of DECA Games. This ambition is shared by both Cryptic and DECA, aiming to ensure the long-term viability of these titles.

The transition to DECA, as Frazier described, is complex and still in progress, involving significant changes to game development and publishing. However, he reassured players that strides are being made, and the collaborative effort between Cryptic and DECA is strong.

Frazier’s post also addressed the internal changes within Cryptic Studios. Acknowledging the departure of some team members due to the instability, he expressed support for those choosing to leave while highlighting the continued dedication of those who stay. The transparency and support within the studio were underscored as crucial elements during this period of change.

Looking ahead, Frazier announced plans to participate in an upcoming stream alongside Mike, Brett, and Jarrod, tentatively scheduled for March 19. This event promises further updates and a chance for the community to engage directly with the leaders of Cryptic Studios.
