Trion and Sci-Fi channel to work on MMO

Monday, 2nd June 2008 17:26 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Trion and the Sci-Fi channel have announced plans to start work on an MMO, to be developed in conjunction with a TV series.

“This is the Holy Grail for us, without a doubt,” Dave Howe, president of the Sci Fi Channel, told the LA Times. “This is groundbreaking, and I don’t say that lightly.”

The property will be 100 years in earth’s future. Both the TV show and game will release in 2010.

“A television show that is on once a week isn’t enough,” Howe added.

“The fans today want the experience to go beyond that. For example, we can tell them that there will be an alien invasion at a certain place in the game, at a certain time, and to be there with all their friends and be ready. The outcome depends on them. And then that battle will be part of the universe in the show.”

    It’s a nice idea to have a game backed by a weekly show but without any solid details I will keep my pinch of salt handy. Plus massive server events makes baby jesus (blizzard) cry.

    Oh and despite my excitement around the new Flash Gordon series, it was a failure of epic proportions so I won’t get my hopes up just yet, besides my sci-fi gaming is still smarting from the kick in the nuts that was Tabula Rasa (not that it’s sci-fi channel related but you get the idea)
