noticed there's been no updates, since dec 2015...and other than the silly "cortex" (on steam) there doesn't seem to be any content, movement, anywhere...

did i miss something? (hopefully)

Nope, Believe the funding may have shrunk and they just have enough to tinker, it isn't officially "dead" but they don't seem to want to "fail" either, so it never launches

IIRC on the webside of Firefly Online the head of development has written that he doesn't want to tell any news containing any dates. In the past he did exactly that and couldn't hold these dates so the whole community was extremely disappointed.

So they should be working on Firefly Online but without any news.
I really don't like this kind of behaviour. I'm used to the kind of handling with updates like e.g. Blizzard. "It's finishes when it's finished". But there are some little pieces you can read about games or updates.

A complete lack of information normally is the worst you could do.



So let's hope that there will be anything in the near future we can read about.

And, to be clear, you're referring to "Firefly Online", a separate MMO RPG, not "the PC version of the game"

Are we talking about the Firefly MMO or a computer version of the board game?

If the MMO, someone posted not long ago on fireflyfans.net that they reached out to the design team and were told that there were legal issues behind the delays. That may also be at play in anything Firefly, given that the renaissance of a 2013-2015 seems to have largely dried up.

if you are referring to a PC version of the board game, there has been one that was made. Not sure if it was for Tabletop Simulator or Vassal at this point (it's been a while since I saw anything about it). Last I knew it was finished and playable though.

If you are referring to the actual PC MMO game, then the others have already pretty much answered that one for you.

Rimworld reportedly gives that Firefly feeling on PC. I haven't had the chance to play it yet though.

took a quick look, and in all honesty it sure doesn't look anything like a FireFly PC game...

As a prime example of how this can go downhill I respectfully point you to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rrpgt/robotech-rpg-tact... that fiasco that is still on-going.

Not to give the rumor mill too hard a tweak or anything, but is there any hope that this happening during a time when Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon aren't tied to any big projects is more than just a coincidence???

Probably not...but I can dream!
