One of VR’s most touted titles has sadly, and surprisingly, begun to disappear this week. Star Trek Bridge Crew from Red Storm Entertainment and Ubisoft has already been delisted on the Steam and Oculus stores. As of this writing you can still buy it from the Ubisoft Store for Oculus and Vive devices, and on PlayStation 4 for PSVR.
Amazon and a few other sites appear to still have download codes but there’s no telling how long they’ll last. The game is on sale on on the PlayStation Store in most Western regions through February 16/17 but has already disappeared in Japan so there’s likely only a few more days to pick it up. If you’re desperate to keep hold of the experience you can also grab a retail copy on PlayStation 4.
The delisting is almost certainly due to expired licensing of the Star Trek properties from Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios. However, the game has gone without much support since 2018 so compatibility issues may also have factored into its removal. It’s sad to see this one go as it was both a landmark Star Trek and virtual reality experience. Thanks to everyone who pointed out the news on this one.
