One Million Already Playing Star Trek Online

Cryptic Studio’s MMORPG Already Has Over One Million Accounts Just Days After Release

February 4, 2010 – Cryptic Studios’ Star Trek Online has already topped one million registered accounts according to publisher Atari.

The massively-multiplayer game takes place in a time period after the currently released Star Trek films and allows players to command starships and battle in space, explore planets, take on quests and recruit others to their cause.

One million registered accounts is a strong indicator of a vibrant online community and it should only grow given Star Trek’s massive fan base and the recent release of the JJ Abrams helmed Star Trek film from last summer.

By comparison, World of Warcraft has more than 11 million current users six years after its release. While attracting new gamers is a noteworthy achievement, keeping them around by offering lots of playing options will be Cryptic’s next challenge.

Star Trek Online was released on Tuesday for the PC.
