Currently in development at EA Chicago under the EA brand, Def Jam 3 will seamlessly infuse the urban lifestyle and hip hop culture into the series' popular fighting mechanic to deliver a truly revolutionary next-generation street fighting game. Def Jam 3 will look, feel and sound like a cutting edge video with the intensity and drama of a big budget action film.

Electronic Arts and Def Jam Enterprises today announced a multi-year exclusive agreement that will deliver next-generation videogames across multiple genres. The first game to be released under the agreement is Def Jam 3 (working title), an action-packed fighting game that builds on the multi-platinum success of its predecessors, Def Jam VENDETTA and Def Jam Fight for NY.

"EA and Def Jam are two of the most recognized brands in entertainment and we are thrilled to extend this partnership into the next generation of console technology," said Larry Probst, Chairman and CEO at EA.

"This partnership continues to solidify the Def Jam Enterprises and EA brands as catalysts of cultural product innovation in all facets of entertainment. The next generation platform opens unlimited possibilities in gaming and we are confident that along with EA, we will guarantee ground-breaking titles," said Kevin Liles, President & CEO, Def Jam Enterprises/EVP Warner Music Group.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
