After the script/pitch is bought by a producer it takes weeks to months to get a show off the ground and running.
How long does it take a few hundred nerds to write the scripts for this game in a code monkey dungeon? A year or two?
The video game side would have needed a huge amount of lead time, or to have cheated some how, or to have produced a significantly inferior project.
The first announcement came in 2010 (different title, sounds like the same project) and Defiance the game was teased at the 2011 E3.
The Defiance TV series went into production April 2012.
