While the rest of the MMO community is happily buzzing about what Trion World Network
is working on in conjunction with the Sci-Fi Channel
, G4's The Feed has come right out and said it
: "A Stargate
MMO developed by Trion World Network
and the SciFi channel is going to be integrated with the Stargate
series sometime in 2010."
Now, we're not out to immediately call shenanigans on G4, but our interview with Jon Van Caneghem
doesn't mention any specific shows, and he should know, so ... where is G4 getting this information? A couple of the commenters for the post have noticed this as well, so we're glad it's not just us.
[UPDATE: Our own Mike Schramm
, who conducted the interview with Mr. Van Caneghem, had confirmed that this will be a new IP, so that rules out Stargate completely.]
