Britain's public broadcaster is working on a number of game projects including a massively multiplayer online gaming title. Alice Taylor from the BBC said that gaming is one area where the organisation could become more relevant to younger generations and "public service money ... should be spent on the form of content most relevant to them".
At the moment the games are "top secret" but will include tie-ins for their radio and tv shows as well as some "independent ideas". She also said that public service games can help to innovate the industry and provide titles that would not have been produced by commercial organisations.
