    This news comes hot on the heels of revelations that Netflix is attempting to resurrect the Firefly TV series.

    Is anybody else hoping that Multiverse takes a note from Bioware
    and adds the possibility of sharing a bunk with Kaylee? :creep:

    I would literally would give Netflix my subscription money back if they would revive Firefly. I hope they do, just like they did with Arrested Development.
    Edit: Also, I would play this game too.

    I vote we tie him to a chair, tape his eyes open and make him watch a seven minute clip of Homeboyz In Outerspace until he dies of starvation.

    I think Firefly was a really great series, and that Serenity was pretty good too, so you can call me a fan. Still, I think people need to stop holding their breath; it's only going to make the next disappointment that much worse.

    As much as I'd like to see more of the 'Verse, I think the time has ultimately passed.

    This... Exactly this. And Bioware? >.> I Look forward to a few more months when SWTOR is another forgotten Free2Play MMORPG.

    There seems to be some confusion.
    Though I mentioned Bioware in the post, they are not involved in the possible development of this game.

    I loved the series and the movie was pretty cool, as for a mmo, it could be good or bad, depending on how it'd be made.. I wonder why never continued the series tho...

    Because Fox sucks in SO many ways. This is but one example.

    Considering how screwed over it was by Fox (airing the episodes out of order, not promoting the show, placing the show in terrible timeslots, etc.), it's no mystery as to why it didn't last longer. Serenity only happened, actually, because the DVD sales were so great. When Serenity fizzled at the box office, though, that effectively nixed any other plans for the series (save for the occasional comic mini series).

    Yep, I thought Vulpes would be behind it. :creep:
    (I also anticipated a mention of Kaylee)
