Buffy the Vampire Slayer MMO

On September 3, 2008, Multiverse announced a MMO based in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe. As of February 19, 2010, the website for the game has been taken down from the developers site and there is no reason to believe that this game will ever be made.[3]

Canonical issues

These games and spinoffs are generally not considered as part of the Buffyverse canon, although the games have been licensed as official Buffy the Vampire Slayer merchandise. Furthermore, the stories of the games have been slotted into the continuity of the Buffyverse. Many of the actors who portray characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer took part in the voice-overs for the games.
