Stargate dev files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment has filed for bankruptcy. Financial troubles surrounding the Stargate Worlds MMO developer have been reported several times since last summer, and it appears the time has come for some serious changes.

The bankruptcy filed is of the Chapter 11 kind, so the company will continue to operate and develop Stargate Resistance, the download-only class-based online shooter for the PC that was released last Friday.

To give an idea of what the company is going through, the following statement has been released, “Cheyenne Mountain’s corporate structure has undergone some dramatic changes in the last few weeks, and that has resulted in various actions such as the filing for Chapter 11. Certain parties believed that was the right thing to do, other parties do not and this is still being evaluated and may be rescinded. Even if the bankruptcy should go through, however, Chapter 11 simply allows a company to restructure its debt to a manageable plan approved by the courts. It does not absolve a company of debt, and it does not shut it down or otherwise affect its daily operations.

“This will all be sorted out in the legal and proper manner, and all of us on the development side of things hope it’s done as quickly as possible.

“That said, our entire staff is in-house working on upgrades and expansions for Stargate Resistance, and we continue to be motivated and excited by the response we’ve received from our customers.”
