EA Inks The Simpsons

In a major step towards consumers finally getting a good game starring Bart, Lisa, Homer, and Marge, EA has announced that they've reached a long-term deal with FOX for the videogame rights to The Simpsons. The first game of the multi-game deal will be launched on next generation systems; no launch date has been announced.

“This is a great opportunity for our talented development team to collaborate with the brilliant minds of The Simpsons to bring original Simpsons material to videogame fans,” said Nick Earl, Vice President and General Manager, EA Redwood Shores Studio. “This is something EA’s been interested in for years and now game development and technology is at a place where The Simpsons characters and world will really come alive in these games.”

Game development will be done at EA’s Redwood Shores Studio, the studio currently responsible for From Russia With Love, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06, The Lord of The Rings: Tactics, The Godfather and The Sims games. Yes sir, they're busy people.
