+ - Firefly Reborn as MMO

Submitted by

thepotoo writes "Wired News is reporting that Multiverse, the maker of a free MMO-creation platform, has struck a deal with Fox Licensing to turn the short-lived show Firefly into an MMORPG in the fashion of Star Wars Galaxies or Eve Online.
From the article: "Bringing [Firefly's diverse] environments and character types to life as an online game will be a challenge: Multiverse is not a game developer, but rather a platform provider whose product is still in beta. Instead of making the game itself, the company will hire a development team that will craft the virtual galaxy using Multiverse tools."

Slated for a 2008 release, this may be Firefly's last, best, hope for continuation."
