TV Series for Trion Worlds’ MMO Defiance Gets Third Season

The television tie-in for Trion Worlds’ sci-fi MMO, Defiance, has been picked up for a third season by the SyFy cable television network. The developer made the following announcement on its website:

We’re proud to confirm the rumors: Syfy has renewed Defiance for a third season to be released on 2015!

The New Frontier is changing. Votan and Human cities alike lay crumbling under the force of terraforming weaponry. Refugees flee onto the frontier, and warlords rise to stake their claim in the chaos.

Defiance’s Creative Lead, Trick Dempsey, previously told Polygon that even if the TV tie-in doesn’t get a third season, it wouldn’t impact the game. He said that Defiance “would definitely survive if there were no season three.”
