The developer behind planned Firefly and Buffy The Vampire Slayer MMOs has gone to the wall before either game ever saw the light of day.
As reported by Massively, California-based Multiverse ceased operations last month.
Founded back in 2004, the company never actually released a commercial title, with its only tangible video game output being two Flash-based promotional titles for McDonalds and Coca Cola.
Its primary focus was its Multiverse Platform - a technology system aimed at reducing the costs of making online games.
It announced plans to release a Firefly MMO back in 2006, and a Buffy MMO in 2008. Movie director James Cameron sat on its board of advisors, with a Titanic MMO project apparently also planned at one time.
A message on the developer's website blamed its closure on the Platform's inability to "achieve a profitable business model."
