July 11, 2009 // 12:45 am - A few weeks ago there was a report that a new Michael Jackson video game was in development, and scheduled to hit consoles for the holiday 2009 season.

Shortly following the news, tragedy stuck the pop star and there was no word on whether the game would still be released or not.

Today IGN has confirmed it's still being developed, to quote:

A report by MCV is confirming the rumor, and says the game is being handled by the singer's own company, MJJ Productions.

According to the report, the game has been in development for "several months" and Jackson himself even recorded speech and dialogue before the musician died.

The game has an expected Christmas 2009 "home console release" for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will also feature a number of artist's hit songs.

A representative from MJJ Productions was quoted as saying "I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games."

The Ready 2 Rumble series was entertaining, but I'll always remember him in Space Channel 5 as Space Michael!

Who knows what the next game will be like. To add to what Boss posted on the OP, IGN reported that according to Dave Perry, the game was supposed to ship with all new material. Possibly being a way to distribute a new album and bring in millions of new gamers. I imagine a platformer with dancing ala Bust a Groove/Move. That would be awesome!
