EA Getting out of Movie Games

Not often you hear something like this from a publisher but apparently according to EA Games president Frank Gibeau, EA is done with movie based games.

The reason for the change of heart:

"The percentage royalties you have to pay the licensors are going the wrong way for publishers. The margins are being squeezed. And, to top it all off, the movie-game business is falling apart.

Considering the total amount of money we have to spend on those types of James Bond games, and the total amount of man-hours we had to put into them, we thought; hell, let?s work on our own IP. The guys who made James Bond games for us, well yeah, they went on and made Dead Space. And look where we are now; what would you rather publish, retail and play ? the latest James Bond or Dead Space 2?"


All I can say is good news all around, if EA is finding it unfeasible to continue making movie based games, then there is hope that the genre will either die out completely or significant improvements will be made to the general quality of movie based games. Either way it's a win for gamers.

i was expecting this, or something like WB. Where the developer pays to use the character but releases its own game. Like Batman Arkham Asylum was supposed to be The Dark knights game, but WB made it better and went their own way with it.

However Activision will still be Activision, and it seems wherever EA leaves Ubisoft steps in. Remember that hour long snorefest for Avatar The Game.....lol

EA has really come around these past few years.

Good call. What was the last GOOD movie game?

Sadly reviewing games for the site I get stuck playing pretty much all of them. The only good one that I can remember lately was Wanted. It wasn't a direct movie to game adaptation, and came out after, but it was a keeper for me.
