Recently many questions arose as to whether or not Stargate Worlds was still in development, but today SGW's Senior Marketing Manager Kevin Balentine answered that question in this official statement sharing that SGW was indeed still working towards release:
The Lights are Still On and Stargate Worlds Development Continues
Ive been asked from many corners lately to provide an official response to a story circulated by Gateworld.net. I spoke with Darren Sumner, the author of the story, soon after it was posted and gave him a detailed response to the article which he decided not to publish.
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. 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.
Its true that the production of Stargate Worlds has been significantly impacted by the greatest worldwide economic downturn in decades, but we are still raising enough money from angel investors to keep the dev team working.
We are currently negotiating several deals that will cover our financial responsibilities and fund the remainder of development. When we sign those deals, youll hear about it. Until then, well keep building Stargate Worlds, because right now, thats the only thing that matters to us.
