Stargate: Timekeepers, an RTS developed by Slitherine, has just been announced. In it, players will play through a wholly original story where Eva McCain and her team have to support SG-1 against Anubis’ fleet. After the battle, Commander McCain and her squad will have to go through time and space to fight system lords, rescue their friends and allies, and more.
“Working on an IP like Stargate is an honor and a testament to our continued effort to reach a wider audience,” Slitherine Marketing Director Marco Minoli said. “We strive to capture players’ imagination by creating our own worlds or by forging experiences based on existing, influential franchises. We look forward to bringing Stargate: Timekeepers to life and creating a long-lasting legacy of Stargate strategy games.” “We’re thrilled to work with Slitherine to bring a new Stargate PC game to market, and provide fans the opportunity to experience the Stargate universe well beyond TV and movie screens,” MGM Global Consumer Products & Experiences executive VP Robert Marick said.
As the game was just announced there’s not too much else to talk about for Stargate: Timekeepers. Apparently, it’s the first licensed PC game for the franchise since Stargate Resistance went offline all the way back in 2011. There were also two mobile games, Stargate Command and Stargate SG-1: Unleashed, released in 2012 and 2013 respectively, so it’s been a long time since Stargate fans have seen any new games of note.
