A new Stargate Resistance Website
is online as home to an upcoming Stargate-themed, class-based third-person shooter from Firesky, developers of the financially troubled
MMORPG Stargate Worlds
. (thanks Ryan). The exact status of the Stargate Worlds project goes unmentioned, but there's a an interview on the site with creative consultant Chris Klug
that says "I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that here at Firesky the last year has been a little rough. The fact I’m here talking to you should tell you there’s a happy ending in sight." Chris also states: "As well as building this new exciting product, paramount to Firesky’s long-term future is restoring your confidence and trust in us. 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." Back to the new project, Chris compares Stargate Resistance
to Stargate Worlds, saying: "Resistance brings to our fans the kind of gameplay SGW never planned to deliver. Resistance delivers the combat, weapons and tactics seen so often on the show that many of you have been asking for." Here's more from the Game Info section
