Sega Sports Crichton

Michael Crichton teams up with Sega to produce an original concept

Michael Crichton, the best-selling author responsible for the likes of Jurassic Park, Timeline, Sphere, The Andromeda Strain and lots of other entertaining novels, will join forces with Sega of American to collaboratively develop an original concept upon which to base a game. The partnership will allow Michael to utilise Sega's top game developers in bringing the title to market for 2004.

Sega is promising that this agreement will buck the trend of traditional licensing agreements by involving Michael to a significant degree from concept to production. Obviously it's a major coup for Sega - let's just hope that this will produce a more successful game than the now-infamous Timeline.

And it won't be called Sega Sports Crichton. We made that up.
