Gameforge has ceased work on the free-to-play browser game Star Trek: Infinite Space, citing a lack of interest from publishing and marketing partners.
"Since autumn 2011 we made many efforts to find a publishing and marketing partner for Star Trek: Infinite Space," the company said in a statement, which we've translated from German.
"Unfortunately, our efforts were not successful. So we have decided with a heavy heart to finally abandon the project Star Trek: Infinite Space. The discontinuation is very regrettable. Unfortunately it happens from time to time that a good concept for a game cannot be implemented as originally planned."
The future of the game had been in doubt for a while, back in November the German company cut 100 employees from its 450 strong team, and reported that it would struggle to release the game without a co-publishing deal.
