EA Sign Brutal Legend  by Craig D at 13:18

EA have today announced that they have signed Double Fine Productions, Inc's rock-music themed third person action/adventure title Brutal Legend. The game which was originally scheduled to be published by Sierra before their merger with Activision will now see the light of day in the Autumn of 2009.

"This is awesome news!" stated Tim Schafer, President of Double Fine Productions. "The quality and creativity of the games EA Partners has been involved with make it a perfect home for our baby, Brütal Legend. Some people were starting to wonder if the saga of Eddie Riggs would ever see the light of day, but now I think it’s clear that this game, like Metal itself, cannot be killed!"

"Brütal Legend is shaping up to be a creative tour de force," said David DeMartini, Senior Vice President and General Manager, EA Partners. "At EAP, we are deeply committed to giving the industry’s elite independent developers a platform to launch their creations to a worldwide audience. Tim Schafer is known for some of the richest stories and characters in our industry, and with Jack Black offering his vocal stylings for Eddie Riggs, we are extremely excited to help Tim and his talented team at Double Fine see their vision come to fruition."
