EA secures exclusive Simpsons license

Simpsons News — Posted 03 Nov, 2005 by Scott

Tired of the latest iteration of Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge? Worried that your state will pass a law forbidding minors from purchasing games like Bonestorm? Love Billy Graham's Bible Blasters but frustrated by the regrettable omission of the Book of Ruth? Then EA just might have the games for you.

Electronic Arts today will announce that it has secured the rights to make games based on Fox Television's long-running animated show The Simpsons.

Though exact terms of the agreement weren't specified, EA did say that it is a multigame, long-term, and exclusive deal. The games will arrive on next-generation systems.

Expectations for the games are no doubt high, as Vivendi Universal Games and Radical Entertainment showed that a commercially and critically successful game could be made out of the license with 2003's The Simpsons Hit & Run. That game has sold more than 4 million copies across multiple platforms.
