BBC has confirmed it will be releasing a massively multiplayer online game based in the Doctor Who universe.
Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is being developed by Three Rings Design, a San Francisco based studio that has released a number of MMO and browser-based games in the past.
"Doctor Who: Worlds in Time will be a free-to-play multiplayer online game that invites players to save the universe by using their wits to solve time-bending puzzles and pulse-pounding challenges", said EVP of digital entertainment at BBC Worldwide Robert Nashak.
"Three Rings is the ideal team for this groundbreaking creative partnership. Not only are they visionaries in the online gaming space, they are lifelong Doctor Who fans with a passion for delivering the level of quality that our players will expect and deserve."
Three Rings CEO Daniel James has said the goal of the game is to stay true to the spirit of the popular franchise and create a fun, simple game at the same time.
"Three Rings is delighted and honored to have the opportunity to create an online game based on Doctor Who. Our goal with Words in Time is to capture the imaginative spirit and depth of the series, whilst being fun and easy to play for all ages." added James.
