 Stargate Worlds  Dev Announces Non-MMO Shooter

Stargate Worlds Dev Announces Non-MMO Shooter

Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, developer of forthcoming MMO Stargate Worlds, and subsidiary FireSky have announced a new non-MMO third-person shooter project, Stargate Resistance.

The game's existence was revealed by way of an official website containing a statement by FireSky creative consultant Chris Klug, who acknowledged the widely-reported financial difficulties endured by Cheyenne Mountain over the past year and expressed his hope that fans of the Stargate franchise will regain confidence in the company's efforts.

"Paramount to FireSky's long-term future is restoring your confidence and trust in us," Klug wrote. "While we've never lied to you about our circumstances, many times we were silent while our critics had their fun at our expense."

"We chose to remain quiet during those times, because, honestly, we often didn't know what our future was day-to-day, sometimes even hour-to-hour. As a group we chose to not say anything until we knew something."

Based on the long-running Stargate film and television franchise, Stargate Resistance itself is an online class-based multiplayer-only team-based shooter, in which the Stargate Command and System Lords factions battle in a variety of gameplay modes.

According to information supplied to Gamasutra by development sources, Resistance is in part serving as an intermediate development project ahead of the long-delayed Stargate Worlds, with many assets from the MMO used to expedite production.

Stargate Resistance is planned to ship in the first quarter of 2010 for the PC.
