Unless you are a pretty serious game geek, you may not recognize the name Will Wright. Wright is the guy behind some of the most popular game franchises in PC gaming including SimCity, The Sims, and Spore. Wright has been with EA since it purchased Maxis in 1997.
EA and Wright have announced that Wright will be leaving EA to start a new firm called Stupid Fun Club. EA will be a major investor in Stupid Fun Club and Wright will run the company. Stupid Fun Club will be an entertainment think tank with the goal of developing ideas for multiple fronts.
