Australian game developer Perception has released a sharply critical press statement regarding publisher JoWood's recent announcement that the Stargate SG-1 game for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC had been cancelled, because, according to JoWood, it satisfied "neither our quality requirements nor the fans expectations," according to CEO Albert Seidi. Perception's comments claim that, in fact, it is the official licensee of MGM on Stargate SG-1: The Alliance, has served "several breach notices" to JoWood over lack of payment for the title, and that development on the game will continue uninterrupted at Perception’s Sydney studio. In addition, according to the company, Perception has begun personal prosecution proceedings against both the CEO, Albert Seidl and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of JoWooD, Andreas Rudas, for the "libelous comments" the company claims were made in the press release. Ben Lenzo, CEO of Perception, further commented: “We view it as unfortunate that JoWooD would elect to make such misleading and libelous comments to the media and the marketplace. Over the last 9 months, JoWooD has openly acknowledged being in breach of contract in a number of areas including many legal and confidentiality breaches as well as several financial defaults for work performed by Perception and accepted by JoWooD.”
