Game studio head an executive Dan Elggren will be leaving Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment and the development of Stargate Worlds due to financial problems within the studio.
The last 8-9 months have been really rough at Dan’s work and we’ve been trying so hard to make it work. Over 100 employees have left since October, so Dan felt he was as loyal as he possibly could be considering that he was basically volunteering for work and not getting paid!
It’s such a shame, because the game he’s been working on for over 3 years was within several months of being ready to ship! I’ve admired how hard Dan has fought for his coworkers and for this game.
He had been interviewing all over the country when he found this job with Gazillion in Louisville, Colorado. A few of his former coworkers are there now, so that’s been a fun connection. We decided that he’d take the job just over a week ago and he begins work there June 1st.
An official announcement is yet to be released by the development team of Stargate Worlds and parent company Fire Sky.
