Stargate Worlds to use BigWorld Tech


Here's something that might blow your mind. Stargate Worlds, the newly announced Stargate MMORPG which some speculate had a role in the demise of Perception's Stargate SG-1 game, is to use the efforts of another Sydney game developer. reports that Micro Forte's BigWorld Technology suite will be running the show behind that game...

"We evaluated many client server solutions to aid us in creating a truly breakthrough next-generation MMO", said Joe Ybarra, Vice President of Product Development at Cheyenne Mountain. "But by far the best overall solution for us is BigWorld's powerful client/server engine and streamlined production toolset. We are excited to be teaming up with them on this project."

The BigWorld Technology Suite is an integrated set of tools, software and systems that provides all of the underlying technology and content development tools required to produce an MMOG. "The Stargate universe has evolved to be one of the most recognized Sci-fi brands in recent times," said Gavin Longhurst, Director of Business Development for BigWorld, "We are thrilled to see such an experienced and talented team as Cheyenne Mountain using BigWorld Technology to bring this visually stunning universe into the highly interactive, compelling online experience that fans and gamers want".

    Oh that's so funny.

    I've worked for MicroForte and Perception. I can't but feel that there's a certain irony to this.

    Congrats to MF anyhow.
