Star Trek: Bridge Crew, the 2017 PC and PlayStation game based on the iconic franchise, has been suddenly pulled from several online game stores. The game allowed up to four players to jointly command a ship and explore space with or without a virtual reality headset.
The store list for the Quest 2 release is still in place, but the purchase option has been removed. The Steam store page is also live, but no purchase options with the message “At the request of the publisher, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is no longer available for purchase on Steam.” The game had been removed upon purchase from Ubisoft’s own store and its Ubisoft Connect launcher.
No reason or official announcement had been made before the withdrawal, but it is probably due to Ubisoft’s agreement for the expiration of the license of the Star Trek name. Games built around popular properties such as Marvel and Lego have already been delisted for the same reason, so it’s not uncommon. Some games removed from the list have returned for purchase, but it is unknown at this time if Star Trek: Bridge Crew, one of the best Quest 2 games, will return.
However, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is currently available for purchase on PlayStation Store. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR title has been heavily discounted from $25 to $10 with the sale running through Thursday, February 17. Since the game was delisted on PC by the publisher itself, the PS4 version will likely follow after the sale.
