Stargate Worlds MMO Under Threat
 
Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment are saying production on the Stargate Worlds MMO continues despite staff salaries being 25 days late.

Quote:

The studio developing Stargate Worlds has confirmed the MMO is still in development - despite the fact staff aren't currently being paid.

According to days-since-cheyenne-mountain-employees-have-been-paid.com, staff have been without wages for 25 days at the time of writing.

In a statement issued to Gamespot the studio said, "At Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, we have always been upfront with the media and our fans that we are a start up. Like many start ups, we face the same cash-flow issues that all pre-revenue companies face.
I'll just have to carry on pretending to be an Asgard on here instead. Oh well.

I'm assuming that's 25 days after the day they were supposed to get paid

Even if the studio goes bust, SONY/MGM will keep the MMO going with someone else though not looking forward to it after seeing early beta game play videos...AWFUL

I would guess they are already bust - missing payroll is the last thing you want to do - your employees talk and it destroys your credibility.

Every Stargate Game so far hasn't made it to the shelves, they keep getting cut :(

Pretty sad, there is a lot of potential there for a big Stargate game

I would have preferred the FPS. No TV show lends itself more to a tactical, squad-based FPS than Stargate.

You've even got the standard set of FPS guns ready. The standard issue Beretta, the P90, the MP5, staff weapons, Zats, the big Death Glider cannon Teal'c carries etc. Plus you've got standard FPS power-ups like a Goa'uld personal shield or a Sodan cloaking device.
