Do you want the blue or red pill?IGN Xbox has a double dose of Matrix goodness posted. First up, is the post that has to do with Interplay acquiring the rights to the Wachowski Brothers smash hit movie The Matrix. It was said that the brothers have been visiting Shiny Entertainment and Interplay numerous times last year checking up on the teams progress and giving some help where help was needed.
No details are known about the deal, but the licensing fees were rumored to have been a whopping $8 to $10 million dollars alone. Info on the game itself is still being kept hush-hush, their are some insiders that believe that Shiny will make it a third-person action/adventure using a few elements from both Sacrifice and Messiah.
IGN Xboxs second post deals with what Dave Perry, Shinys head guy, thinks about working on The Matrix game. "We have complete and utter access to the making of the movie. We have total access to everything. You can go ahead and guess what you want as to what that entails, but this is not a little game. Its huge. I havent been this titillated or involved in a game since Earthworm Jim. In fact, Im the lead designer on the project."
Look to see The Matrix on many next-gen platforms and to be released around the same time as the movie sequel sometime next year.
