Not much is known about the upcoming game from EA that may or may not be called Dante’s Inferno when it hits the game market next year, but Universal has outbid three other studios to make sure they’ve got their hands on the movie rights for it so it’s got to be something pretty special.
Variety reports this morning that Uni outbid MGM, New Regency and Paramount for the film properties, which was surprising since EA hadn’t even mentioned the game’s existence when the concept was presented to the film community. The game that may end up being called Dante’s Inferno will be a modern interpretation of the classic poem that will see players fighting their way through all the levels of Hell. Nice!
Strike Entertainment will be producing the Dante’s Inferno film with EA Entertainment VP Patrick O’Brien and game creator Jonathan Knight closely involved with the final product. As soon as we learn more about the actual game itself, you’ll be the first to know!
