Electronic Arts has signed a deal to produce a video game from Curt Schilling’s company 38 Studios. Hiawatha Bray of the Boston Globe reports that the product “has nothing to do with sports” and will instead be “a single-player fantasy role playing game, still under development and code-named Project Mercury.”
Here’s more from the story:
The action takes place inside a fantasy world being created by two of Schilling’s partners, novelist R. A. Salvatore and comic book artist Todd McFarlane. The same imaginary world will be the setting for a second project from 38 Studios, a multiplayer, Internet-based game being developed in Maynard under the code name Copernicus.
I’ve never been into comic books, but isn’t calling Todd McFarlane merely “comic book artist Todd McFarlane” akin to, say, calling Barack Obama “politician Barack Obama”?
Also, the blogging world definitely needs more code names.
