Trion Worlds’ second MMO, Defiance, out later this year

Trion Worlds must really love developing MMOs. Rift, their first entry into the genre, is only a few weeks old but having enjoyed a promising start both critcally and commercially, the team has confirmed a few details about another MMO in works with the Syfy TV channel.

The game will be called Defiance, although there’s no confirmation about appearances from Daniel Craig or any Russians. A TV show on Syfy will link to the MMO which is a third-person shooter. That’s about all we know on gameplay, but at least a 2011 release has been confirmed.

For some reason, I’m imagining this being an MMO adaption of The Fifth Element. Trion, if you’re reading, make that game, please.
