Could we be getting ready for a new journey through the Stargate?
According to the latest rumors, yes.
Gateworld reports an effort is underway to revive the Stargate universe. What isn’t certain is what type of medium could be used to bring the universe back to fans.
The source is somewhat sketchy, an independent producer named Darren Thomas with game developer Ordino Studios, but according to him MGM is planning to bring the franchise off of life support, likely as a videogame of some kind.
Here’s the announcement recap, via the official Stargate SG-1 Facebook page:
Wow, what a day! Tonight the Stargate Convention in Vancouver, is buzzing with excitement about an earlier announcement made by independent producer, Darren Thomas. Fans were treated to previously unreleased news about MGM’s collaboration on a new SG-1 App designed for smart phones and tablets. The scoop from Thomas is that MGM is reviving SG-1 albeit in a new format — music to the ears of many fans around the world. Thomas didn’t want to divulge more, but he did say that “plans are underway and I wish I could tell you more. The good news is that we will be unveiling something big at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.” [Set for mid-July]. But in the meantime stay tuned for more information right here on the SG-1 official MGM page.
So are you happy about the news that Stargate could come back? Or were you hoping that somehow it’d be a revival of SGU?
