Comic book nerds will always remember Marv Wolfman as the man who invented Blade or revitalized the Teen Titan franchise, but he’s about to add yet another feather to his hat: PlanetSide 2.
Sony Online Entertainment announced today that Wolfman has signed on to pen the MMOG’s storyline and assist in character development. Wolfman and Sony have a bit of history, as he worked with them to craft DC Universe Online.
“Marv is an extremely talented writer and was an instrumental partner in the creation of DC Universe Online; we are thrilled to team up with him again,” said Russ Shanks, Chief Operating Officer at SOE. “Marv has the ability to create powerful storylines, compelling characters, and rich, interlocking narratives that will provide an all-new depth and meaning to the PlanetSide experience for players to enjoy.”
“I’m thrilled to be working with SOE again,” he said. “Not only do I get to take elements from the original PlanetSide and further develop an extensive backstory that can help players more fully understand this incredible new world, but even better, I get to create dozens of individual characters that I hope will help bring alive the story of PlanetSide 2 for the entire player community.”
PlanetSide 2 is still in the early stages of development, so Sony hasn’t even begun to talk about a release date.
