Star Trek Video Game, – J.J. Abrams Dropped Involvement Early On
When I first checked this game out in 2012, it was looking like a great game. Then the closer the release got, the more troubling the gameplay footage looked and it’s release was then followed by mounds of criticism. Well looks like we now know why. J.J. Abrams has come out recently to say that he distanced himself from Digital Extremes’ Star Trek: The Video Game prior to its completion, describing the finished product as a big disappointment.
“The last game was obviously a big disappointment to me. We were actually involved at the very beginning of it, and then we realized that it was not going in a place where we were going to get what we wanted. So we dropped out and they continued to do it. To me the video game could have been something exciting, instead it was not. For me, emotionally, it hurt, because we were working our asses off making the movie and then this game got universally panned.”
Well there you have it. Another Game company screwing up a franchise
