Defiance, the Syfy TV show that ties in with the PC and Console MMO of the same name, has been renewed for a third season, the game's publisher Trion Worlds has announced.

"The New Frontier is changing," Creative Lead at Trion Worlds Trick Dempsey said on the game's website. "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. Is this the end of the Earth Republic? Will civilization descend into a new Pale War or will we rise above in a spirit of Defiance?"

Defiance the game switched to a free-to-play model earlier this year to coincide with the premiere of the TV show's second season.

The third season will be released in 2015.

Defiance was released in 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, and in May Dempsey told us that Trion World will consider bringing the game to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 once more people owned them. For more on Defiance, check out our interview with Dempsey.
