New Buffy video game coming out in MMORPG form
Although it's no replacement for the show, Fox and the Multiverse Network may have found a new way for Buffy fans to obsess over their favorite universe. John Landau, producer and "Advisor to Multiverse," announced the game during his keynote speech at the Virtual World Conference and Expo.
This does pose bad news for a previously announced Firefly-based game originally slated for launch in 2008. Despite the fact that this premise probably makes more sense, Multiverse is likely trying to avoid the same financial flop that happened with Serenity. The Buffy game is entering beta later this year, which likely means a full release early 2009.
