With Starwars Galaxies not living up to everyones expectations and a Startrek MMO currently in the works, its not surprising that the next big space MMO would come from Battlestar Galactica. The announcement comes just a few days before the 4th season of Battlestar Galactica kicks off this Friday. I don’t know about you guys, but I love Battlestar Galactica. Without a doubt it’s the best Scifi show ever and probably one of the best shows in any genre of all time.
But enough of the show, Auran Games, creaters of Fury and the Battlestar Galactica flight sim game, will be working on this new MMO which will be published by Sierra Online. The game is currently in the very very early stages of development, but I was able find some info about it by speaking to Greg Lane, CEO of Auran Games.
The game will take place during the first Cylon War,which makes sense considering it would be pretty hard to do a MMO where there’s only 50,000 people and your stuck on a few dozen ships. Humans will be the only playable race, so if you were hoping to be a Cylon your out of luck. Thats basically all the info I was able to get, but I’ll be keeping in touch to provide updates.
I know this is an April Fool’s joke because there’s no way a company that fucked up a simple 2D space shooter would be allowed anywhere near something like a MMOG.
April Fools :)
It is a possibility, but posted on April 1st… April Fools!
Oh, you forgot to mention “StarGate: Worlds” ;)
1st: StarWars: Galaxies (crappy)
2nd: Star Trek: Online (hopeful)
3rd: StarGate: Worlds (promising)
Let’s see, how about:
* Farscape Online
* Andromeda Online
BSG will be cool also.
But still, April Fools :p
Darn!!! I really was getting excited there!! They really do need to make a MMORPG for BSG though….
