The studio developing Stargate Worlds has confirmed the MMO is still in development - despite the fact staff aren't currently being paid.

According to days-since-cheyenne-mountain-employees-have-been-paid.com, staff have been without wages for 25 days at the time of writing.

In a statement issued to Gamespot the studio said, "At Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, we have always been upfront with the media and our fans that we are a start up. Like many start ups, we face the same cash-flow issues that all pre-revenue companies face.

"We have maintained a core of dedicated investors, but the new economic realities are forcing us to seek out additional sources of funding and that’s what we're doing."

Meanwhile, the statement went on, work on the MMO is still ongoing. "We continue to move forward on the Stargate Worlds project. We recently completed a successful phase of closed beta testing and we will start a second phase early in 2009."

You can still sign up for the beta over on StargateWorlds.com. For more info, visit the gamepage.
