    Yes its Scifi (Or Syfy, what a bunch of..well I can't say without violating forum language rules, but its not nice) but did you see who is doing the show? The guy heading up the TV side of things is none other than Farscape creator Rocke O'Bannon. So I'm expecting it to be pretty awesome.

    Maybe they need to concentrate on There current game Rift .. seems strange a company working on a new MMO just months after releasing a MMO , if this was a regular business & you were a stockholder you would have to think there given up on the original business .. Maybe Rift was released to pay for the real MMO , you would have to asume Rift has Made 40-50 Million dollars in sales that has to be alot more than the budget of Rift so were all the money going - To Defiance ?

    Apparently, companies are not allowed to work on multiple projects at a time.

    All gaming companies have only one employee who is capable of coding, and as such, if there are multiple projects, no time is spent on anything else.

    Mythic ceased to exist. And WAR is on life support, no updates are coming out.

    He does have a point.

    Not only Rift & Defiance, but they're also working on End of Nations, an MMORTS.

    for a fledgling MMO company, they are spreading themselves very very thin.

    Oh god, does this mean we're going to start getting people going "I heard all the good devs moved to the new product and dont care about Rift anymore!" every time something happens people dont agree with?

    EA killed Mythic. Mythic was fine before EA took over and started playing stupid with funding and personell.

    As soon as you can come and show us a full breakdown of the companies staff and resources to be able to devote to their work then you might have a valid point.

    Tha age of a company is really irrelivant. If they have the resources and backing they could produce 100s of games......but they are doing three, yes three.

    Now to me it is up to the company themselves to manage their workforce, not us. They seem to have dedicated teams allocated to the three projects. So, give us evidence as to why they are going to make each projecgt suffer from having things this way then people would listen to you, otherwise, well, nice unsubstanciated opinion you have there.

    if they'll let us change the script, will they also let us change it back to "SciFi" like it's supposed to be? Honestly, does anyone truly think 'syfy' looks better?

    It looks too cartoonish to me.
