Curt SchillingFormer Arizona Diamondbacks and Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s online fantasy roleplaying game now has a code name: Project Mercury. As of today, it also has a publisher: Electronic Arts’ Partners label.

We already know the venture also includes Todd McFarlane, creator of the Spawn comic book series and also a Valley resident, and fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, who has penned many of the D&D-related Forgotten Realms novels and the adaptation of Star Wars — Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

According to Kotaku, which reported on the game’s development title and EA’s involvement, Mercury will be release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. And for now, that’s about all we know.

Schilling, an avid gamer, founded 38 Studios in 2006. “This is my life after baseball,” Schilling told GameTap.com in a 2008 interview last year. “After baseball, I will do nothing except be a father, husband, and run this company.”
