The Godfather game

At the 17th Annual Bear Stearns Media, Entertainment & Information Conference, EA Games Chief Financial Officer Warren Jensen confirmed that the company is developing a game based on The Godfather film classics.

“I think that many of you know that we are developing The Godfather,” Jensen said, explaining that he expects the game to receive an “M” rating from the ESRB. No further details about the title were announced.

Until now ‘mature themed’ games, such as Grant Theft Auto and Mafia, have not been a part of EA’s strategy so this certainly marks a significant departure from EA’s normal family-friendly approach. EA’s titles have never before been specifically targeted higher than a “Teen” rating.
