Mr. Speculation: "26 Days Until..."
Posted: Tuesday July 1st, 2008 by

Over on the Cryptic Studios homepage a countdown timer has appeared. The countdown clock is set to conclude on July 28th. Immediate speculation was that this was a lead up to a Star Trek Online announcement. This speculation was pretty much confirmed when people realized the clock was set on top of an older piece of STO concept artwork.

Now, the cited article starts off "the mystery of which studio is handling Star Trek Online may soon be at an end". Not to poke at the reporter, but this makes my DUH muscles twitch. We knew back in March that Cryptic had acquired most of the STO assets and a good number of ex-Perpetual employees. It's not like Cryptic was going to buy the rights/assets to STO and shelf them. It was just a matter of time before they let us know what was up.

Granted this is a bit sooner than I thought it was going to be. But hey... the sooner the better when it comes to a Star Trek MMO right?

Sorry about the drag and drop graphics, there just didn't seem to be a good reason to redraw Mr. Speculation and his dopey looking friend. At least I changed Dopey's shirt dammit. Don't you judge me.
