EA and Warner Bros. Interactive plan to continue their collabrative partnership with the release of Superman Returns next summer. Superman The Game is scheduled to hit the Xbox 360 next year right around the movie's June 30 release date. "Current generation platform" versions are planned, but at this point EA didn't reveal which other consoles would receive it. "EA is capturing the rich mythology of Superman and the visual excitement of our latest film to build a uniquely thrilling videogame for our fans," said Paul Levitz, DC's President & Publisher. "We are all working together to bring players as much of the Superman experience as possible." Superman Returns will be developed by the football fanatics at EA Tiburon. No word yet on whether EA plans to employ any of the talent from Bryan Singer's next comic book adventure. "We have assembled world class talent at EA Tiburon to deliver this blockbuster experience and we are thrilled to team up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics and have the opportunity to demonstrate our creative and technological expertise in the action/adventure category," said Steven Chiang, vice president and studio general manager, EA Tiburon. "We are creating a game that allows players to experience a real sense of flying, and master Superman's unrivaled super hero powers in order to save Metropolis. Only Superman can meet challenges of this scale." We'll have more on Superman Returns soon.
