Loyal Browncoats were gutted when Multiverse closed their doors earlier this week and ceased development of their canned Firefly MMO, but there appears to still be hope in the shape of a newly-created company. Multiverse Foundation is a small group of volunteers who have nabbed the freely-available Multiverse source code, and plan to start "work full-time on the actual MMO creation platform" as soon as possible.

However, Multiverse Foundation will face a number of major hurdles, the most difficult of which will be to acquire the rights to the Firefly IP. Not to mention the trials and tribulations of volunteer development. Here's hoping they succeed.
