Ea To Release The Godfather Game In Early 2006

@ 2005/07/15
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.-- July 14, 2005 – Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that its highly anticipated title, The Godfather™ The Game, is set for worldwide launch on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and the PC in the company’s fourth fiscal quarter which ends March 31, 2006. A next generation console version will appear later.

Developed by EA and based on the book by Mario Puzo and the classic film by Paramount Pictures through a licensing relationship with Viacom Consumer Products, EA’s The Godfather puts players at the center of one of the world’s most revered stories. Gamers will create their own mob character, relive classic moments from the fiction and experience open-world game play alongside memorable characters from the film.

“The Godfather is one of the most cherished franchises in entertainment,” said Executive Producer David DeMartini. “Releasing the game in early 2006 allows us more time to perfect the open-world experience of being a member of the Corleone family.”


Featuring non-linear action-adventure game play, The Godfather will thrust players into a world dominated by fear and respect. The game will offer players countless choices for solving the family’s problems with violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mixture of both. From mob hits and racket takeovers to drive-bys and extortion – players will step deep inside the world of The Godfather where intimidation and negotiation are tickets to the top. Players will use an innovative control mechanic to earn respect through interactions with characters in the world. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences, just as it was in the mob underworld featured in The Godfather fiction.
