Over the last couple of weeks, Hailing Frequency has been reporting on the future of Star Trek: Infinite Space, which has recently been stalled following the layoff of over 100 employees at GameForge and an internal company re-structure.

GameForge previously indicated that Infinite Space would only have a future if a co-publisher could be found to help bring the game to completion (relativly speaking) and today, one possible contender has been revealed.

Earlier today, german gaming website OGLabs reported that BigPoint Games, most famously known for games such as Battlestar Galactica Online (BGO) are in discussions with GameForge to come on-board as a co-publisher!

According to the report, GameForge has not yet responded to the offer from BigPoint, but if the deal is succesful, it will see Infinite Space launched sometime in 2012.   The game would continue to be developed by Keen Games, with GameForge and BigPoint acting as co-publishers, however, the partnership would also likely need to be signed off on by CBS Consumer Products, who tend to be quite fussy with regard to who they give access to the Star Trek license.

This is good news for fans of the game who were worried that it may be completely dead.   Hailing Frequency will continue monitoring the situation and will publish updates as and when they become available.
