EA has announced plans to publish 38 Studios' single-player RPG Project Mercury on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Developed by 38 Studios subsidiary Big Huge Games, Project Mercury is set in a universe created by fantasy author R. A. Salvatore, with art direction by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and creative direction from Ken Rolston, who was lead designer on Elder Scrolls titles Morrowind and Oblivion.
38 Studios is the outfit established by American baseball player Curt Schilling. The company is currently working on an MMORPG codenamed Copernicus, and both Salvatore and McFarlane have been working on that too.
There are no other details on the game, but Schilling - a huge Everquest fan, who invested some of his baseball earnings to set up 38 Studios - said to expect "an enormous world, with heroes and villains and a rich back story from the brilliant minds of R. A., Todd and Ken at its heart".
