Trion Worlds turned the Defiance MMO into a free-to-play title in June 2014. The studio said all along that it would continue making the game even if the show ended, and Hartsman reiterated that notion in his statement today.
“As for the game and its future, Defiance is Trion’s IP and the game will continue exactly as before,” said Hartsman. “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.”
