by | October 14, 2005 | Comments

According to Variety, master storyteller Steven Spielberg will partner with EA Games to bring three new properties to the EB shelves. Production is already underway on the first one, although specific details are, not surprisingly, being kept under wraps right now.

"Initial work has already begun on the first title. EA is keeping it tightly under wraps, though it is expected to be sci-fi or action adventure.

EA will own the games and their underlying intellectual property, including the right to make sequels and license them with or without the director. Spielberg and his Amblin hingle will have first look at developing the games for film and television.

Spielberg previously created the "Medal of Honor" game franchise, first produced by DreamWorks Interactive. It is now published by EA, which bought the studio’s game division in 2000."
