Firefly Online Game Announcement at SDCC 2013 . I think that speaks for itself...

A sad waste of a good IP. You had to figure that it would be a small venture anyways. Firefly is a very niche fiction.

Who knows, it might take off and become something huge. I love me some Firefly!

Yeah, but keep in mind that it'll likely be without Joss Whedon writing it.
Oh, and it's a smart phone thing, not an MMO...
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

Suggestion for letting us add certain story characters to our Strongholds.

The future is saaad for sci-fi and MMOs.

Star Citizen is a pseudo-MMO and it looks to be incredible. If you are into that sort of game that is.

Watched the series when it was on TV. Own the series. Watched the movie in the theater. Own the movie. But I just can't see myself playing a game for smart phone/tablet. And I've been hoping for a Firefly MMO.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Same here about the series and movie. However, although they say its for tablet/phone, the do use the qualifier 'initially.' That leads me to believe they will expand it for the PC at some point. I guess it might depend on the demand for the game and interest. So, I'm hoping it will be available. I really don't want to buy a tablet, though I may end up doing so for the future.
