Chair Entertainment, the studio responsible for the recently freely distributed Xbox Live peace offering, Undertow, has claimed the rights to create a game based on Orson Scott Card’s classic sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, says this.

“From the moment I started working with [creative director] Donald Mustard and his team at Chair, I knew that these were the guys I wanted to do the first Ender’s Game video game,” said Card. “It’s not enough to slap the Ender’s Game name on just any game–it has to be exciting, memorable, and endlessly replayable. Chair shares my understanding of this and I am looking forward to working with them to ensure the game is as authentically Enderish as possible.”

No release date has been given but work is expected to start later this year.
