Dante's Inferno Details Leaked Through Developer's Resume
Ever since a few days ago, when movie studios began vying for the film rights to EA’s new game, Dante’s Inferno, people have been wondering one thing: just what the heck is Dante’s Inferno? Other than the title and the fact that it will involve a journey through hell, there hasn’t been much information available to give us a better picture of the game. Luckily, we’ve now got a few more details, which were dug up by Gamecyte from a rather unlikely source. Apparently, the game’s creator, Jonathan Knight — best known for his work on The Sims 2 and The Simpsons Game — updated his resume to outline some brief details for an “Unnannounced Franchise,” which is most likely Dante’s Inferno. Inadvertently, Knight’s resume reveals some key details of the game, including it’s platform, genre, and EA’s future plans for the IP. Here’s what he reveals on his resume:
Executive Producer, Unannounced Franchise (PS3, X360, PC)
- Creator and executive producer of an original action/adventure trilogy currently in production.
- Building and managing a large internal team from ground up, with contractors and distributed development.
- Simultaneously preparing the IP for a comic series, graphic novel, animated feature and feature film.
- Planned worldwide announcement of the game in January 2009.
Unfortunately, after Gamecyte tried to reach Knight for comment on this information, his resume was taken off of his personal website. That probably means they’re keeping a tight lid on this project, and we won’t be hearing anything new about it until early next year, as the resume indicates.
So it’s going to be an “action/adventure trilogy?” If you’ve ever read the actual 14th century Italian poem this game takes it’s title from, then you already know that an allegory-laden tour of Hell with a classical Roman poet as your guide is nothing but action and adventure. And does this mean there are already sequels in the works for Purgatorio and Paradiso? One can only hope…that they change the title before its release.
