Announced at San Diego Comic-Con, Firefly Online is being developed by QMXi and Spark Plug Games, and it will hit iOS and Android smartphones and tablets next summer.

In the game you play as a ship captain who can enlist a crew, embark on missions and trade goods with other players. There’s also ship customisation and cross-play.

Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum Mechanix Inc. said of the announcement, “At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how mighty the Browncoats are.

“It has always been our mission to bring the Verse to life for our customers in every way possible. The idea of creating an interactive experience where fans can have their own Firefly adventures — well, that’s just too shiny for words.”

Matt McMahon, VP of mobile for Fox Digital Entertainment added, “We are thrilled to be partnering with QMx on Firefly Online.

“QMx has a long and successful history with Firefly and we couldn’t think of a better partner to make a truly innovative game that will stand up in the Verse and to its passionate fans.”
