Do you remember when World Series MVP Curt Schilling left baseball to make video games? I for one thought the dude was out of his mind--what, you're going to leave the MLB for Full Sail University? Well, the joke's on me, because his company just signed a publishing deal with EA
. Big Huge Games, which was once owned by THQ and is now owned by 38 Studios
, signed a deal with EA to publish the project code-named "Project Mercury." Featuring artistic design by Todd McFarlane and a universe designed by inimitable fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, the game is slated to be "an epic single-player RPG." Considering this same development team did Elder Scrolls 3 and 4, this one's going on the pre-order list.
