Peter Jackson and 360 get together

Thursday 28 September 2006
Lord of the Rings, King Kong and - for the true fans of his work - Brain Dead film writer and director Peter Jackson will create two new franchises for Xbox 360, Microsoft announced at its X06 showcase in Barcelona.

A new studio, Wingnut Interactive, will be created to produce these games - likely in Jackson's native New Zealand, alongside CGI house Weta. The first will be a co-production with Bungie for a Halo spin-off, and the second an unannounced title intended for mass-market appeal. Probably not Meet the Feebles: The Game, then.
