(RUMOR) - A New Matrix Game Possible For Xbox Next?

RUMOR #1: A new Matrix game will be released as an exclusive launch title for the Xbox Next in 2005. Source: Capitalism’s premier publication, the Wall Street Journal. The official story: "Sorry, can’t comment on that"--David Perry, the president and founder of Enter the Matrix developer Shiny Entertainment. Attempts to elicit comment from Microsoft or Atari were unsuccessful. What we heard: Inside the WSJ’s Weekend Journal, tucked beneath a lengthy column on Fahrenheit 9/11’s Oscar chances, was a brief article entitled "Wachowski Watch." While the gist of the piece was directors Larry and Andy Wachowski’s first post-Matrix film (one possibility: an adaptation of the cult comic book V for Vendetta), author John Lippman also spoke with their agent Laurence Mattis about the pair’s game projects. Besides mentioning Sega and Monolith’s Matrix Online, Mattis also mentioned "an Xbox Matrix game for 2005." While the development of a new Matrix title is well known, Mattis’ statement sparked rumors of a Microsoft exclusive. Throw in the year--2005, when analysts predict the Xbox Next will hit the US market--and the launch-title theory is born. Does it hold water? Maybe. Consider this scenario: Since Atari announced it is developing two Matrix titles, it could have the best of both worlds, creating a fighter/shooter sequel to Enter the Matrix for all platforms and another Matrix game in a different genre (role-playing perhaps?) solely for the Xbox. But, given that no one is talking, that’s about as speculative as speculative can be. Bogus or not bogus?: While there will be another Matrix game for the Xbox (or its successor), it’s way too early to tell if it will be an exclusive.
