EA officially hires NBA Jam creator

Turmell to oversee IP revival?

EA Sports has made official the hiring of NBA Jam creator Mark Turmell.

This announcement follows "source"-based reports made earlier this week that claimed EA was in the throws of revitalising NBA Jam for Wii.

Turmell's position at EA Sports was hardly a secret, however, and rather information publicly available via the man's LinkedIn profile.

While Turmell's appointment adds significant weight to an NBA Jam revival, his day-to-day duties will be done at EA Tiburon, the studio that makes Madden and NCAA Football games.
