Eric Nylund and Microsoft's Next Big Thang

Eric Nylund is spouting off.

As the Halo novelist and the dude who's doing the story and setting for Epic Games' Gears of War, he gets to.

But now he's got me excited.

What am I working on next? Well, if you took all the best parts of your favorite
games, and smashed them together at light speed with your favorite movies and
books, you'd get something close to this. It's not announced yet, but as soon as
Microsoft does, I can at least tell you the title, genre, and what particular
thing makes this game goose-bump worthy. So stay tuned.

What? What? An Alex Ross-Inspired Marvel MMO? Something in the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy world? A Star Wars (or Star Wars Legacy) MMO? He did say "light speed", after all -- maybe it's a BioWare Austin-developed, Microsoft-published Star Wars Legacy MMO ...

Fine. I'm "staying tuned". But if I'm right, I want to to be the voice of every freaking character in the game.
