Thanks to telepresence for the heads-up on this one:

If this does not link you directly, the headline for the article is midway down the page.

I find this sad, because I was personally looking forward to it. I also find it sad because the show people put some amount of effort into cooperating with the project -- MS talked about having recorded 200 pages' worth of dialogue for the game, and RDA did a similar amount, I think -- and now all of that is down the drain, wasted. And, as stated previously, I'm sad because this would have been, in some ways, some "new" Jack material that we would have gotten, and "classic" Jack, classic team, at that. I also think it's kind of a bummer from a franchise POV.

However, I do understand the problem from a marketing standpoint, that there was no use bringing out a game that would already have looked out of date. That while it might have been fun for people who were already rabid SG fans, for the game to be successful and for it to be beneficial to the franchise, it needed not to incur the contempt of people who are foremost gaming aficionadoes.

It's just... still a pity that it bombed, whatever the reasons for it having bombed.

maybe they'll auction the bits and pieces of it that they already did on ebay? ;)

Nice idea, but I don't think it works like that. :)
