Hollywood heavyweight goes game developer

Dec 19, 2007

Heavyweight movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer is teaming up with MTV Games to produce new entertainment properties that will begin life as games.

"Video games represent a new and innovative medium for what we've always tried to do, which is to tell great stories. But this medium is unique in that it gives the player control over how those stories unfold," Bruckheimer (reportedly) says.

"I look forward to working with MTV Games to create new original game stories, always looking for ways to innovate the medium."

As yet there's no word on any actual games in production at the Bruckheimer-MTV team-up house, but MTV executive vice president Jeff Yapp has suggested the focus will be on more than just traditional videogames.
