Stargate Resistance servers to shut down Jan. 15, game no longer for sale

If you've been keeping the Stargate Resistance alive since it launched back in February, sadly, all hope is lost: The game will shut down on January 15, 2011. According to a recent missive on the game's site, the agreement between MGM, the owners of the Stargate license, and Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, the Resistance developer, expired earlier this month, and as a result the game is no longer being offered for sale to new customers. If there's a silver lining here, it's in the ability for existing players to keep up the fight ... until the inevitable end in mid-January.

Cheyenne has had a rough year, filing for Chapter 11 shortly after launch of Stargate Resistance. While it's possible MGM and Cheyenne could strike a new agreement bringing the game back online, the chances appear to be slim to none.
