This weekend GateWorld reported on some developments that could move the defunct Stargate SG-1 franchise forward. It sounds like there is an app-based game in the works for smartphones and tablets, but there are hints of a further announcement at Comic-Con that would involve a larger revival.
Last year about this time we saw the end of 14 consecutive years of Stargate being on TV in some form when Stargate Universe ended, a victim of Syfy’s infamous penchant for canceling scripted sci-fi shows in favor of “reality” programming. We’ve also borne witness to unnecessarily convoluted and ultimately unsuccessful attempts to create a gaming franchise out of the property and their online remnants, which have been taken over by shady online gambling operations.
