FireSky, the publishing division of Mesa-based video game developer Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, says their newly released third-person shooter Stargate Resistance is still being supported despite the company’s bankruptcy, which came even as the game was hitting the market (reported here yesterday).
A statement from FireSky, published by Fragland and reprinted on the jump, reveals the nature of the bankruptcy protection sought — Chapter 11 — and says daily operations will continue, with upgrades and expansions in the works for Resistance.
No mention is made of Stargate Worlds, the massively multiplayer online roleplaying game that has been in development in Mesa for four years:
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parties believed that was the right thing to do, other parties do not and this is still being evaluated and may be rescinded.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.
See you on the battlefield!
