DICE fait savoir à travers un communiqué de presse sur son site web qu'ils viennent de signer un très gros contrat avec Electronic Arts pour le développement d'un jeu au concept nouveau. Le jeu est prévu sur Xbox et PS2 pour le printemps 2005.
Le communiqué de presse :
" Digital Illusions CE AB signs one of its most important agreements to date with the world’s biggest game publisher, Electronic Arts. The new game is based on a totally new concept that Digital Illusions designed and owns the intellectual rights to. The new contract is estimated to be worth about 50 million kronor, plus possible future royalty income.
The new agreement covers the development of a totally new game concept, initially for two platforms; PS2 and Xbox. The development will take place at the company’s Göteborg office. The title, which is not yet official, is planned to be launched in the spring of 2005.
- The agreement is additional evidence of Digital Illusions’ capability of designing and selling its own game concept that the big publishers will bet on. The contract is also entirely in line with our new business strategy, which is based on development of our own trademarks that Digital Illusions owns, says Patrick Söderlund, president of Digital Illusions.
- The contract gives us a guaranteed production budget during the next two years and the product is expected to have very good prospects for generating extra income in the form of royalties to the company in 2005 and 2006, says Patrick Söderlund, president of Digital Illusions. "
@Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (8 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (8 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (8 Hours ago)
@droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (8 Hours ago)
Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (9 Hours ago)
And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (9 Hours ago)
Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (9 Hours ago)
