Stargate Worlds announced

Although this partnership between Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment and MGM Interactive started in September 2005, it's only been formally announced today. The two are teaming up to bring Stargate Worlds, a massively multiplayer title set in the Stargate SG-1 universe, to life.

The game is apparently "an MMO that provides players with a form of exploration, adventure and ranged combat set in worlds of historical human time periods, alien environments, and outer space locations". It sounds interesting on paper, but bringing a popular franchise to life as an MMO isn't an easy task.

However, it seems every man and his dog is creating an MMO these days, and it may be hard to get this one right first time.
