Godfather sequels on the way?

It's mighty likely, according to EA.

EA's videogame adaptation of The Godfather may not even be on the shelves yet, but the publishing giant is already planning to develop titles based on the second and third instalments in the movie series.

That's according to executive producer David DeMartini, who told BBC News: "We went into this venture taking into consideration the establishment of a brand new franchise. Our intention is to make two and three."

DeMartini said that around 75 per cent of the game is based on the film, while 15 per cent has been inspired by Mario Puzo's novel. As for the remaining 10 per cent, well, they just made it up: "We wanted to create an intense gaming experience, exclusive of the license.

"We wanted to make a category leader that would give significant competition to the GTA game and basically would provide a very formidable alternative," DeMartini went on.

"We found a tremendous number of things that they were doing well that we tried to match. And then some very specific opportunities for innovation and enhancements that should establish us as the leader in those areas."

The Godfather is out on PC, PS2 and Xbox on March 24th, with Xbox 360 and PSP versions to follow.
