According to this AP story, EA will be releasing a “proper” version of Scrabble on Facebook, after making moves to close down the popular Scrabulous earlier this year.

EA spokeswoman Trudy Muller said the video game maker’s offering would be “an authorized, licensed Scrabble game experience that people familiar with Scrabble can instantly recognize as Scrabble.”

Apparently, the rights for Scrabble are split between the US and Europe, which means you won’t be able to play the game with your Facebook friends over the pond. Genius. More through the link.
