It's a well-known fact that for the past year or so, Electronic Arts has developed an insatiable addiction for new intellectual property
. Rather than kick the habit, the company's making moves to further feed its franchise fixation -- EA recently filed two trademarks
reserving the title "The Ripper" for use in a computer game (or other "entertainment service").
Now, this title could mean one of two things: It may be a Visceral Games-developed action title based on Jack the Ripper, a project which was hinted at by anonymous EA sources to the LA Times
back in July. It could also be an interactive biography of the life of Rip Taylor
, which has no
supporting evidence behind it whatsoever, but would make us happy for the rest of our lives.
