Originally scheduled for release in March, upcoming VR game Star Trek: Bridge Crew has been delayed until May 30.
It was originally supposed to come out in 2016, but was pushed to March of this year. News of the delay comes in a confirmation from Ubisoft that the crew from Star Trek: The Original Series will be playable in the game. Whether or not this has anything to do with the delay isn’t clear.
David Votypka, the creative director of Red Storm Entertainment said in a statement: “We’re also appreciative of players’ patience as we finalize work on the game to bring the Star Trek experience we envisioned to life.”
On The Original Series’ crew being added to the game, David Votypka said: “We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary. The original USS Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise – it’s the ship that started it all.
“The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history, so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship. We’re very excited to see player reactions when they step onto the USS Enterprise original bridge for the first time, and experience Star Trek: Bridge Crew in a whole new way.”
