EA has refused to comment on "rumour and speculation" that a sequel to brilliant Wii puzzle game Boom Blox is in the works.

That's according to US website Variety, which claims returning developer EA Los Angeles has already begun fleshing out the project.

There's no word on whether Boom Blox 2 will be a Wii-only game, nor whether Steven Spielberg will once again be involved.

The source of all this, interestingly, is a former employee of "Blueprint" - a supposedly top secret EA studio tasked with dreaming up new IP.

The developer has apparently been shut down, although no one will acknowledge the existence of "Blueprint" or issue an official announcement. Sounds like the X-Files.

Boom Blox was released on Wii back in May, and fell under Ellie's uncompromising eye for appraisal. But, much to our surprise, the game made such an impression that Ellie was soon championing its cause.
