Will Wright & EA Partner Up

GameDaily reports that Will Wright is parting ways with Electronic Arts, and the designer of The Sims and Spore will now concentrate on running Stupid Fun Club. The association with EA is still there, however, as not coincidentally, this press release announces EA is making an equity investment to partner with Wright in the Stupid Fun Club. Word is:
EA and Will each own equal percentages of Stupid Fun Club and are the principal shareholders. In addition, EA has the right to develop game concepts that spring from Stupid Fun Club projects. Will Wright is represented by Creative Artists Agency.

"The entertainment industry is moving rapidly into an era of revolutionary change," said Will Wright. "Stupid Fun Club will explore new possibilities that are emerging from this sublime chaos and create new forms of entertainment on a variety of platforms. In my twelve years at EA, I've had the pleasure to work alongside some of the brightest and most talented game developers in the industry and I look forward to working with them again in the near future."

"We believe in Will's vision for Stupid Fun Club and we're looking forward to partnering with Will and his team long into the future," said John Riccitiello, EA's Chief Executive Officer. "Will is a great designer and he's been part of a great legacy of globally recognized game franchises like The Sims, SimCity and Spore. The teams that have been leading those franchises in recent years have a lot of exciting content coming."

Where is ... System Shock 3?

Where it should be, resting in peace. There is neither a game business climate nor a company that would make this game anything but a huge clusterfuck.
