Doctor Who MMO announced

US studio developing Worlds in Time.

A new Dr Who MMO is in the works, the BBC has announced.

Subtitled Worlds in Time, it's currently in development at California-based social and mobile gaming specialists Three Rings.

The finished game is expected to launch later this year as a free-to-play title. There are no concrete gameplay details as of yet but BBC exec Robert Nashak promised "time-bending puzzles" and "pulse-pounding challenges".

"Our goal with 'Words in Time' is to capture the imaginative spirit and depth of the series, whilst being fun and easy to play for all ages," added Three Rings CEO Daniel James.

The doctor has been a busy chap of late. A series of Sumo Digital-developed PC adventure games launched last year, as well as dismal Wii outing Return to Earth.
