WarCry is reporting that Cryptic Studios has confirmed that it conducted interviews with a number of P2 employees, but had no comment on the STO license.
Cryptic Studios confirmed that they recently brought in developers from P2 Entertainment's Star Trek Online for job interviews, but had no comment on reports that they had purchased the game's assets or acquired the license from CBS.
They were interviewed for positions on unannounced projects at the Bay Area studio, with permission from P2.
Sources at P2 confirm that development on STO has largely stopped, although when contacted P2 representatives had no comment. They did, however, confirm that the entire development team is, as of today, still employed with the company.
This has fueled community rumors that Cryptic Studios may not be acquiring STO from P2 after all.
