The story is being penned by Marianne Krawczky, the BAFTA award winner behind the God of War scripts. She’ll be working alongside Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writers/producers of the latest Star Trek movie.
Digital Extremes, the team behind The Darkness II, Bioshock 2 and Dark Sector are developing.
“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced,” said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience.”
