Battlestar Movie and MMORPG in the Works?

If you're to believe geekmonthly and their unattributed sources, along with a misleading article title, then the answer is yes.

Despite declining ratings for Battlestar Galactica on SciFi Channel, nearly universal critical acclaim along with robust DVD sales have led Universal Home Video to consider greenlighting a Battlestar Galactica direct-to-video telefilm, which will presumably air on The SciFi Channel, after debuting on home video, sources tell Geek.

Sounds interesting, except for the next sentence which reads "If it goes forward, the two hour telefilm will shoot in March during the series hiatus and prior to the commencement of production on the series fourth season in June." Well that's not exactly true to the title, "Galactica Direct-To-Video Movie Set To Launch." It looks like nothing more than a fluffy title meant to prop up a speculative piece with nothing to back it up. It also ignores the fact that there's no guarantee that BSG will even get a fourth season. We've heard rumors like this about the Stargate franchise for years and nothing has ever come of it. Take it with a grain of salt, because that's all this rumor is worth.

Speaking of BSG rumors, this comes from 1up.com on a possible Battlestar MMORPG, because you know, the world needs another MMORPG.

A listing recently appeared on EBGames.com for a Xbox 360 MMO version of TV's Battlestar Galactica from Vivendi. As the product listing was removed from the system (it was up earlier today, scout's honor), this left us wondering what's up with the proposed TV-to-MMO adaption of the highly regarded sci-fi drama.

Vivendi owns NBC and the SciFi channel, which gives them rights to Battlestar. What do you think, more fluff?

General Electric owns NBC, which in turn bought Universal from Vivendi. Vivendi is a French company that sold off its entertainment arm. Universal bought the Sci Fi Channel prior to being bought up themselves by NBC to become NBC Universal.
