Bruckheimer Games working on three titles?

Former employee's resume says studio founded by film icon may be crafting a trio of "major unannounced video games, including Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 products."

Source: A since-pulled resume for former Bruckheimer Games employee Justin Leader, captured via Google Docs by Internet sleuth Superannuation.

What we heard: Film icon Jerry Bruckheimer--who helped create big action films like the Pirates of the Caribbean series--partnered with MTV Games in 2007 to create an "incubation studio" called Jerry Bruckheimer Games, where game ideas would be developed but not the games themselves. Little has been heard as to what the studio has been working on since its inception, but now, new information has trickled out.

When will Bruckheimer announce what his game studio is up to?

According to the resume of former Jerry Bruckheimer Games employee Justin Leader, the studio is (or was) working on not one, but three "major unannounced video games, including Xbox 360, and PS3 products." Unfortunately, further specifics were not offered.

The official story: Neither Jerry Bruckheimer Games nor MTV Games--which is all but closed down--could be reached for comment.

Bogus or not bogus: To date, Jerry Bruckheimer Games has yet to announce or release anything pertaining to what it is working on. Additionally, the studio's website is empty and is only accepting registrations. However, it's a near certainty that the studio is developing something, and Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games are a likely fit.

Jerry Bruckheimer I would like to see Jerry deliver a game that is not a movie port. The guy is creative and great at movies. So a new "Heavy Rain" type of game I could see from Jerry BruckHeimer games.

Announcement - my games company is developing something. I dont have any video to show, or any concept art, or anything to talk about....or a development team, or a staff, or a games company, nor am I developing anything, but trust me its in the works. Now on with the buzz interwebs.

I'm going to have to reserve judgement until I see/play one of these games.

Im not holding my breath, as im fairly sure whatever these games turn out to be, they'll be simple style over substance affairs, just like his movies.

people who make movies should stick to movies and game developers should stick to games. trying to do the other always results in it ending badly. and sorry to whoever thinks its a great idea, but that company idea is ridiculous. so they dont make games, they just get an concept... wow i can do that too. all i need is a few mind altering substances and a few hours and il have an idea.... but the programing skills is what is needed then ^^. i bet every second gamer here has atleast once thought of an awesome different concept, but you cant realy make it(yet). so sorry, but this group seems bogus. you would have to be mental to pay someone for that position. and jerry isnt a smal name either, so he aint gona settle for small change. seriously, am i the only one that sees this as utter crap?

Bruckheimer is successful because he produces everything. I've seen some pretty good Bruckheimer produced movies and TV shows and some pretty bad ones too. Since it's his first venture into video games, I have a feeling they will be mostly bad. Just a hunch though, I'd love to be wrong and get some more quality games on the market.

wouldn't surprise me - I mean, video games is probably more of a certainty re: profits than a big budget movie is these days.
