In an effort to keep players safe, Q-Tech Game Studios has announced the possibility of Star Trader, an online Real-time Strategy game, being delayed by a few weeks while the company works on making the game more secure. This bug stems to the very root of the engine, potentially exposing sensitive information such as IP addresses to non-privileged users. A user's IP address can be used to locate a particular user to some degree, but is very useful in analyzing traffic. Q-Tech Game Studios does record the IP address of every user in an attempt to prevent multiple accounts from being created by the same person. This information, however, is not shared with any outside parties.
As such, Star Trader may not make the scheduled release date. The beta release will be delayed if the final release must be pushed back.
We apologize for this, but it is our mission to ensure the privacy of our players. We hope to see you trading among the stars soon!
