EA: Spielberg’s LMNO still in production

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 31 October 2008 14:18 GMT


EA has just confirmed to VG247 that Steven Spielberg’s LMNO is still in production.

“Development of LMNO continues at EALA under the creative leadership of Doug Church (Creative Director) and Lou Castle (Executive Producer),” said the firm in a statement.

It was rumoured this morning that the majority of the team had been laid off in the wake of Q2 losses, announced yesterday.

EA made no comment on whether or not any developers working on the game had been made redundant.

LMNO is the codename for the second EA game signed up as a collaboration with Spielberg in 2007. The other title was codenamed PQRS at the time, and turned out to be BoomBlox.

The as yet unannounced game is thought to be an action project for 360 and PS3.
