EA Signs on for Wheel of Time Games, MMO

Electronic Arts will distribute Red Eagle Games' upcoming line of games inspired by Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time book series, the duo have announced.

Red Eagle is planning to transform the fantasy franchise into "a line of stand-alone games" for "all major videogame platforms," including PC and consoles, along with a massively multiplayer online role-playing game for unknown platforms.

All will be distributed through the EA Partners Label, which enables EA to pair with other third-party developers for publishing and distribution, including Valve, Harmonix, and id.

"The Wheel of Time series has a massive worldwide following and we're excited to help give Red Eagle Games' interactive products a blockbuster launch on the global stage," said EA Partners senior VP and general manager David DeMartini.
