EA VP speaks on plans for The Godfather

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Electronic Arts vice president David De Martini has revealed the company's thinking with regards to the forthcoming The Godfather title - which will be the firm's first major foray into mature gaming. "I think it's an opportunity that arose, and hopefully it'll be too good to miss," De Martini told us in response to being asked whether the game represented a shift in direction towards mature content for the firm.

"The game is obviously not rated yet, but it deals with mature subject matter," he explained. "The movies were rated R in the USA... But their world wasn't just about violence, and I think we're going to be true to that story, in that you need to be a balanced player to move most optimally through our gaming experience."
