So news came through in early January that Multiverse, developers of the Firefly MMO - and the Buffy one as well - had closed down. And the same day, word came that the code had been picked up by the newly formed, volunteer-run Multiverse Foundation. Who, at time of writing, have a website with the first actual non-ironic “under construction” signs I’ve seen since the 90s.
Like the Rogue Firefly MMO - which still has a working website, at least - they don’t have rights to the IP, only the code.
I’m no more convinced by this than by the rogue game, to be honest, but at least it’s SOME news. Let’s hope the Multiverse Foundation is a little better at communications than their predecessors.
