Richard Morgan penning video games
5th November 2009
Cyberpunk novelist Richard Morgan has been working on video games for Electronic Arts (EA).
Writing on his official blog, the Broken Angels author explained that video games are an 'addiction' for him and he was excited to be contacted by EA's John Miles about working on three new titles.
'That was a year ago. Now, without breaking any non-disclosure agreements, I can cautiously reveal that I've been pulled in to consult on three separate games,' he stated.
Morgan also said he enjoys working with video games, as it is an emerging industry that has not yet had the creativity 'strangled' out of it, as has been the case in Hollywood.
The author added that the creative potential of the video games industry is 'huge' and is only just starting to offer opportunities to story writers.
Morgan's novels include Woken Furies, Market Forces and Altered Carbon, while he has also published graphic novels such as Black Widow: Homecoming and Black Widow: The Things They Say About Her.
