BigPoint hopes to do just that with the announcement today at GDC 2010 of plans to release Battlestar Galactica Online, a browser-based MMO based on the the "reimagined" TV show that had a five year run on the Syfy Channel before shutting down.
The game itself is being developed by BigPoint which operates a lot of free-to-play browser based games. The company is opening up a US office in San Fransisco this year. Battlestar Galactica Online is expect to launch sometime in the fall of 2010 on the Syfy.com web site for a 30 day exclusive period. A teaser site for the game is already online. The final version will use the Unity engine and will allow players to pick between the human and Cylon races in a game that will combine space combat, missions and exploration. We just hope there will be missions with sexy lady robots. That's all we are saying.
