Sega teams up with Crichton
Sega announced today that it has teamed up with Michael Crichton to develop an original game with a story that has not been revealed yet. Crichton is a renowned writer and best known for his work with Jurassic Park and Westworld. The game is scheduled to be produced sometime in 2004; however, very few details have been given concerning the project.
President of Sega stated, "Unlike traditional licensing agreements in which pre-existing properties are developed into video games, Sega's partnership with Michael Crichton is a unique alliance bringing together brilliant talent from two different entertainment media to create a game concept from scratch. Michael Crichton is a creative mastermind, recognized across all traditional entertainment media including print, film and TV. We are thrilled that Mr. Crichton has chosen to leverage his talents in the interactive entertainment industry with Sega."
Mr. Crichton said, "Partnering with Sega, who has an extraordinary track record in the interactive entertainment industry, is an opportunity to create an amazing video game from the ground up. I look forward to working with Sega's first-rate creative team."
PSX Extreme will have more details as they become available.
