So, originally Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment's (CME) had planned to release Stargate: Worlds in Q4 2008, but this was later changed to some point in 2009. This is not necessarily a surprise - most MMOs drop a release date due to over-enthusiastic predictions - but it is something that has to cause some problems, especially for small(er) independent studios who don't have large financial resources to fall back on.
In CME's case, there have already been some rumours about how financial CME might be, with CME indicating that as a start-up they might run into trouble now and again, but that's a "typical cash flow issue".
If the latest rumour is correct, I don't think their employees will be too happy about the "typical" state of affairs - it has allegedly been 3 weeks since any CME employees have been paid. Now, I have to take this as "three weeks since they were last expected to be paid, because CME might pay their employees monthly. Regardless, if true: Ouch. And just in time for Xmas.
Let's hope this isn't the case: I want my Deadlands MMO.
