Just when the future looked bright for Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment and their MMORPG StarGate Worlds, things have just turned around. It all started when the official website went down, and stayed that way for a few weeks. Then, Massively.com decided to contact Cheyenne just to find out that it's all a bit disheartening.

It seems that the funding problems are again of the issue, and that while the development team is said to remain positive, we wonder how much they can be when their game has been halted so many times. Here's the complete statement from Timothy N. Jenson, President and CEO of Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment:

"The stargateworlds.com site is owned by MGM and went down on Friday due to a change in DNS server providers. Cheyenne and MGM are working on getting the site back up and it is expected to be back up this week. [Ed. note: the site has already been restored.] As for the Stargate Worlds game and Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, Inc., our company has struggled in the current economic climate to raise the funding needed to successfully develop and publish our MMORPG. While there continues to be a lot of desire, enthusiasm and excitement about the project from our employees, investors and fans, we will not be able to provide any updates on the development of Stargate Worlds until sufficient funding is available."
