EA Publishing Project Mercury RPG For PC, PS3, And Xbox 360
Electronic Arts announced today that they will be publishing 38 Studios' first game, a single-player RPG called Project Mercury. Mercury is being developed by Rise of Nations creators Big Huge Games, a subsidiary of 38 Studios.
Though very little is known about Mercury, it's received a lot of attention due to the big names attached to the project. Development is overseen by Ken Rolston, formerly lead designer for Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. R.A. Salvatore, the popular Dungeons & Dragons novelist who created the character Drizzt Do'Urden, is constructing the game world's story. Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, meanwhile, is handling art direction. If that's not enough star power for you, then it's worth pointing out that 38 Studios was founded by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.
No release date has been set for Mercury yet. Big Huge Games is developing it for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
