Joss Whedon Firefly Game
"Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” series will get its own massively multiplayer online game (MMOG). The Multiverse Network, Inc., one of the largest and fastest growing companies responsible for MMOGs has only recently acquired the rights to develop the MMOG based on Whedon’s highly, but short-lived, popular sci-fi television series. 20th Century Fox optioned the rights to The Multiverse Network, Inc. for an undisclosed figure. One item that was revealed has Multiverse selecting and leading an independent production team to develop the project. Fox and Multiverse expect the offering to be available to the public through The Multiverse Network sometime in 2008.
“Fox’s Firefly series is set in an incredibly rich and exciting universe. It’s going to make a very compelling and unique online experience filled with adventure, humor, and mystery,” said Corey Bridges, Multiverse co-founder and Executive Producer. “It’s our hope that Firefly’s passionate and dedicated community of fans will enjoy the chance to become part of the story as they develop and explore the worlds of Firefly.”
