Rumour: Creative Assembly sports title is London Olympic Games

Real-time strategy legends Creative Assembly are taking on the sports genre in the biggest way possible, by looking to the 2012 Olympic Games.

Sources claim they're going Olympian with it releasing in time for the 2012 event in London. Recent rumours pegged them to be on Football Manager.

"There are some brilliant rumours going round today that Creative Assembly Oz are working on FM for consoles," twittered Miles Jacobson of Sports Interactive, reports Eurogamer. "False." Sega has published Olympic games before.

"I can't say what they are working on. They'll announce when they are ready to. But it's not one of our games at all," he later added. This has all sparked from the recent job listing which revealed a "next-gen sports" game from the Creative Assembly team.

Let's just hope the actual London Olympic Games make it in 2012 - getting a videogame to go with it would just be a bonus. Do you enjoy the Olympic season, videogamer?

I'm sure EA, and perhaps others will have a similar title in development. Remains to be seen what CA can bring to the table.
