On December 18, MTV Games announced a brand-new game initiative: a multi-year partnership with Jerry Bruckheimer to create original video games (no spin-offs of existing Bruckheimer shows or movies.) No title or time frame has been announced. Right now it's still early days.
This, indeed, is the Next Big Thing for MTV Games that MTV's executive VP Jeff Yapp teased in an interview with Reuters last month. Stephen Totilo from MTV News was one of the few reporters to get phone time with Bruckheimer and Yapp on Tuesday to talk about the deal.
In this interview, Bruckheimer answers questions about his hopes and plans for gaming.
