Michael Jackson MMO announced

The life and times of America’s first real-life Splicer are set to be exploited once again, this time in MMO form! Due for PC next year, Planet Michael is the latest cash-in on the controversial dead freak. 

Developed by SEE Virtual Worlds, Planet Michael is all about the Thing of Pop’s “music, life and the global issues that concerned him.” SEE claims that Planet Michael has been developed to “build an interactive environment where fans from all over the world come together to affirm Michael’s life-long dedication to fostering global friendships.”

The game is free-to-play, although obviously there will be microtransactions, presumably for cool things like gloves, hates and bribes for juries. Can’t wait!
