Browncoats Get Ready

According to an article from Wired , it seems that Multiverse has struck a deal with Fox Licensing to turn Firefly into a Massive-Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG).

For those that are unaware of the awesome-ness that is Firefly, allow me to elighten you. Firefly was a television show that ran for 11 episodes before meeting its end. It is also the reason that people now band together to save television shows. Written and conceived by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), this is science fiction for the now, with some of the best dialogue to ever grace the small screen. Firefly has been labeled as this generation’s Star Trek. From the article:

The universe of Firefly and its spinoff film, Serenity, featured everything from Old West-style towns to futuristic urban environments, gritty spaceships and pastoral retreats — freedom fighters, oppressive government agents, smugglers, outlaws, mercenaries, trader, townsfolk, futuristic geishas and a race of corrupted humans known as the Reavers.

The idea of making a MMORPG out of the world that Whedon created is nothing short of brilliant. This could be a MMORPG that I could actually get into. But, you never now.
