D'OH, EA lands rights to the Simpons

EA snatched another IP away from Vivendi yesterday when it acquired the exclusive rights to make video games based on the Simpsons television program.  Dean Takahashi has some of the details and a short interview on his blog.  No financial terms were released but this is the second big take-away for EA as they acquired the distribution rights for Half-Life 2 earlier this year.

This is a bit disappointing to me because Vivendi was finally starting to crank out decent games based on the franchise.  I can't say that I have high hopes for what EA is going to do with the property but you never know.
