Sorry, Browncoats, no matter how much you wish it into being, you’re just not going to get anymore new Firefly (or I guess it could always happen like Star Trek, maybe there’s a Firefly: The Next Generation waiting somewhere in the future). After Serenity, probably the closest we’re going to get is the upcoming Firefly Online. I honestly have no idea when it’s coming out, as it was originally supposed to drop this past summer (it’s now slated for summer 2015), but the cast and crew unveiled some in-game footage at New York Comic Con the other day, and it looks pretty damn impressive.
This clip, which doesn’t show much aside from the environment and the character movement, is striking even though not much happens. But to reiterate, this is in-game footage. The YouTube clips takes great pains to point out that what you see here is what you will be able to play for yourself, and not a cinematic or a cut scene. What you see here is the 3D Environment Engine that the game uses in all of its glory, and, not having much knowledge in the way of videogames, I have to guess that this is going to make many fans very, very happy.
