The Firefly television series was cancelled in 2003 after only making 14 episodes and later one movie titled Serenity, but the series has developed a really loyal following of fans, who to this day would like to see the series continue. Unfortunately, that isnÂt likely to happen, but another band of Firefly fans at developer DarkCryo set off to create a beast of a different sort.
Last June we received a tip that DarkCryo had begun development on a Firefly-based MMORPG titled Firefly Universe Online. While not an officially licensed title, the developers are proceeding with development of the game citing Âfair use.Â Whether they pursue a licensing agreement with Fox later or may face potential roadblocks due to that in the future in anyoneÂs guess, but for now, development continues.
Firefly Universe Online is expected to release in December 2012. Limited alpha testing is now underway and the first Firefly Universe Online trailer was recently revealed. Give it a look after the break and tell us what you think in the comments below.
