Defiance TV Show Cancelled, Game Will “Continue Exactly as Before”

Available as a free download through the PlayStation Store on PlayStation 3, the video game Defiance from Trion Worlds will continue on, despite the TV show being cancelled by SyFy after three seasons.

Sending out a statement regarding the TV show’s cancellation, Trion CEO Scott Hartsman said the game won’t change and there are still plenty of stories to tell:

As for the game and its future, Defiance is Trion’s IP and the game will continue exactly as before.  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.

In fact, we’re happy to announce that we’re looking forward to the upcoming public testing of Monterey Aquarium, the next big instance coming to Defiance. There we’ll flesh out the Shrill storyline and put the Dark Matter in a whole new light.

There are plenty of stories that need to be told in this world, and the team’s extremely excited to continue telling them.

First released in 2013 as a paid title, we said, “Overall, Defiance is well worth the base price for players looking to find a great third-person shooter with a good deal of ever-evolving content.”
