There's another thread i believe on this board about "Stargate Worlds". Link, thread started by Ghoul-Ash.
In my opinion they declared this MMORPG way to earlier. Cheyenne stated they are in "pre-production" which basically means they are still creating their game design document. They are not even in alpha much less have a viable demo. That means they are 4 years away from going retail on this MMO title, if at all.
Although Perpetual Entertainment the makers of "Star Trek Online" did the same thing over a year ago. So we're about 3 years from a retail release on that title which makes for a very long wait.
I would rather be surpirsed by a game developer to annoucne a MMO that is practically in beta testing period. That way they could reduce the long haul of dealing with ranting gamers and/or a community of potential customers until they have to.
Hopefully the long wait will result in a premium product. Im not saying im severly interested in Star Trek and Star Gate but if its comes to food or those two games on release day.... lets just say my kids can go without milk for a day or two.....
Big fan of SG1, will have to do some hunting around on this.
Oops, wrong forum
So what's the spawn rate on replicators???
I'm all for SG Online! I like alot of the Star Trek shows, but I've yet to see a game that has remotly captured my interest.
Hopefully they just get it right on the Star Trek game, because thier other games stink to high heaven, just look at ST Bridge Commander! Great concept for a game but how they did it was absolute crap! Hopefully they wont be 4 years away too.
I think you may find they did a very early announcment on the MMO for SG because they seem to have cancelled SG-1 The Alliance. There was a heap of chat about it around the place and some very disgruntled people. The other game was being developed in Aus by umm some mob . Also the copyright owners (umm MGM) I think have gone very proactive on people doing mods etc ( I think there may have been one for HL2 and some others) so this may be a bone?
For those in the US
Stargate Sweepstakes Promotion
Plus also release date sorta
GateWorld - New Stargate Worlds sweepstakes announced
The reason they announce it early is because nerds trawl through the Securities Listings of each company looking for scoops for their gaming blogs.
This way they don't get unwanted leaks. Of course, if it's made outside of the US, the same thing doesn't happen...
Also it's a way for MGM to say "don't bother asking for a StarGate license, we won't give it to you".
