Stargate Worlds: The Lights Are Still On
As we reported yesterday, executive producer of the hit TV series ‘Stargate’, Brad Wright, commented on the state of SGW in an interview recently:
“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.”
This led to more speculation on the future of the highly anticipated title, which has faced numerous financial setbacks. However, a developer has made a statement on the official SGW site to update fans on the status of the game. According to the post, Mr Wright wasn’t completely up to date with the progress of the game:
“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.”
It goes on to say that people are working on SGW seven days a week, and that contributions from “angel” investors are keeping things running. Apparently, a number of deals are being negotiated that will ensure the continuation and completion of the game.
“When we sign those deals, you’ll hear about it. Until then, we’ll keep building Stargate Worlds, because right now, that’s the only thing that matters to us.”
