Publisher Cheyenne Closes Its Door

Pack Your Bags: Publisher for Stargate Worlds ceased development this week due to lack of funds.

Via Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, the long-troubled company behind MMO Stargate Worlds, has closed its doors and shut down all operations. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February, though a statement at the time hinted that the studio would maintain its daily operations. However, a memo to shareholders last week revealed that the company has laid off all of its employees, ceased development and shut down the office after not having enough funds to pay the rent.

The future of the Stargate Worlds MMO is bleak at this point, though Cheyenne’s other title – the action-oriented Stargate Resistance – has been sold to a new company called Fresh Start Studio, which was founded by Cheyenne shareholders “in an effort to preserve the game and prevent it from going offline”.

Stargate Resistance: MMO

Stargate Resistance is a fast-paced and deadly 3rd person shooter for control of the entire galaxy!

The arrogant System Lords believe they are the true masters of the universe, and have begun a savage campaign to dominate and enslave the known worlds.
