Cheyenne Mountain marketing boss Kevin Balentine has dismissed claims that the firm’s Stargate MMO’s been flushed down the swanny, saying everything’s carrying on as planned.
One of the IPs TV producers said on Monday that the game was likely dead.
“Our official response is that the lights here are still on and the development team is working hard every day to get this game built,” Balentine told Big Download.
“Team members are in the office seven days a week to deliver Stargate Worlds. Brad Wright is the Stargate expert and a creative consultant on Stargate Worlds who advises us on the story; unfortunately we had not recently updated him on our progress or the impact from the current global economic crisis, and he was not fully aware of the continuing progress on our game.”
Phew. There’s still no date, however.

This doesn’t look hopeful. An executive producer of the Stargate TV series has insinuated that the licensed Cheyenne Mountain Stargate Worlds MMO is a dead duck, saying its failure to appear is “a terrible shame”.
Brad Wright, who also worked as creative consultant on the title, was questioned on the game’s status by the GateWorld fansite.
“We don’t know,” he said. “It’s a shame. If it doesn’t happen – and, let’s be honest, it should be happening now if it was happening – it’s a shame. It’s a terrible shame.”
Wright added: “They had an opportunity and they got our support, and they obviously had significant funding, and it didn’t happen.”
Whoops. More on EG.
