As news came down over the weekend that SyFy wouldn't be renewing Defiance for a fourth season, my first thought was, "Dang." After a bit of a rough start, the show improved noticeably in its second season, and I'd heard the third was pretty good, too. "Heard," because all previous viewing outlets, like Hulu, insisted I have a cable subscription before I could watch it on their site, which kind of invalidates the need for Hulu in the first place. But that's a rant for another time...
What does that mean for the Defiance MMO? No worries, says Trion Worlds. CEO Scott Hartsman confirmed that
"As for the game and its future, Defiance is Trion's IP and the game will continue exactly as before. The show has always been a fantastic and interesting partner, but the two were always meant to be able to stand on their own, which is why the show was primarily set in St. Louis and the game in the SF Bay Area."
So there you go. The game will remain unchanged (and pretty good, in my opinion) for the foreseeable future, with new content, new stories, and so on, for as long as Trion sees fit to publish it. You can also read the official statement on the Defiance website.
