The Associated Press reports that Michael Jackson's estate has entered a licensing deal with a Los Angeles company that will create an online virtual world based on the King of Pop called "Planet Michael." Michael Jackson will surely live on, if only as an avatar.
The planet will live inside the Entropia Universe, a so-called "massively multiplayer online" game that has about 100,000 active users and is run by the Swedish company Mind Ark. Jackson's estate will work with the game publisher to develop the game, which is slated for a late 2011 release. Fans will be able to collect and trade virtual Jackson merchandise, and earn credits by performing challenges related to his music and dance moves.
