Slobodan Simic of Fudzilla has picked up on the fact that Amazon.com has attached a release date to their pre-order listing of Star Trek Online, which is being listed as releasing on February 2nd, 2010.
Generally, it's best to take retailer listed release dates (in the absence of an official announcement) with a grain of salt, but they are often pretty accurate when listed only a few months before a game's launch window. As it has been previously reported, Cryptic Studios and Atari have already confirmed the game will launch in early Q1 2010, and this date most certainly falls into the Q1 2010 timeframe.
Doing some digging around we discovered that GameStop is also listing their Star Trek Online release date at February 2nd, 2010, lending some credence to this rumor.
However, until Cryptic Studios either makes an official announcement or confirms this date to us we're cautioning that this story is still in the realm of speculation. We'll update this story if we receive any more information, so stay tuned!
UPDATE: Eurogamer has now confirmed with Atari and Cryptic Studios that Star Trek Online will indeed launch on February 2nd, 2009 in North America, and February 5th, 2009 in Europe. Set your calendars!
