EA to develop G.I. Joe games

Tie-in for the new movie in late Summer

We were not surprised to find out that Electronic Arts has secured the rights to develop a video game that will coincide with the release of the G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra live action movie that Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment have in development for an August 7th release in theaters.

While we don’t know much yet about the actual game, we do know that it will be a multi-platform release that will include Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable and various mobile devices. The game will tie into the story in the film and the games should be released in about the same time frame as the movie, according to EA, so we suspect that the game has been in development at least for a while.

What we do know about the actual game is that it will offer a co-op mode and you will be able to choose from at least twelve different G.I. Joe characters that will all have different abilities and weapons. No information was given as to which actual characters might appear in the game itself, but we would say that it is safe to assume that at least some of your favorites will be there.

EA appears to be hopeful that the game will help in the push to bring this property to a new generation and gamers are sure to get an interactive experience that is better than previous G.I. Joe video games.

Between the new Transformers game from Activision and the new G.I. Joe game from EA, it appears that retro will continue to be in for at least some of the titles released in 2009.
