From XenGamers’ web site:
Best-selling author Michael Crichton has been signed by Sega to develop a new video game based on an original concept to be created by Michael Crichton in association with Sega. The partnership will bring together Sega and Michael Crichton in a collaborative venture resulting in a new game currently scheduled for release in 2004. Specifics regarding the game will be disclosed by Sega in the coming months.
Sounds intriguing…it should be worth a look to see what Crichton comes up with for Sega development.
