Will Wright Jumps EA Ship


In a surprise move, heralded game designed Will Wright has decided to move on from Maxis and Electronic Arts to pursue a new venture called (seriously) Stupid Fun Club. What is the Stupid Fun Club (other than sounding like stupid fun)? This is Wright’s description:

“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.”

Which means what again? Anyway, that means he’ll still be developing, but across a variety of media. Also, EA still has the first rights to anything he publishes. What does this mean for the Spore, Sims, and other franchises? No word on that yet.
