Wrath of Lucas
Entertainment Company LLC today announced it has, following intense
competition, acquired the rights from The Collective, Inc. to
publish Wrath, one of interactive entertainment's most highly sought
after games. Wrath, expected to release for next generation console
platforms in 2003, is a dynamic arcade-style game with a turn-based
element that uniquely blends strategy and action.
"Wrath's gameplay garnered an immense amount of well-deserved
buzz when The Collective revealed the game to the press last
year," says Simon Jeffery, president of LucasArts.
"LucasArts feels it is the ideal publisher; Wrath complements
our original game legacy incredibly well and supports our continuing
strategy of working with the world's premiere game developers."
"Wrath is our first original title, and with it we aim to
establish a new genre and standard in head-to-head console
gaming," says Richard Hare, creative director for The
Collective. "Considering LucasArts' rich heritage of developing
exceptional, innovative games, they are without doubt the best
publishing partner for Wrath and we are delighted to be furthering
our relationship with them."
