'Planet Michael' To Debut Late 2011

Planet Michael, an online virtual world devoted to Jackson's life, music and concerns, is being developed to open late 2011, and will combine features of a massively multiplayer online game and social networking, according to USA Today.

"We put a focus on something that will truly allow fans to immerse themselves in a Michael Jackson-like universe or music-video-like world and interact with each other and then go on adventures and do gameplay stuff and socialize," says Josh Gordon of developer SEE Virtual Worlds.

Gordon implies those that are intrigued should think of World of Warcraft, except with no violence and more dancing. "The player is more apt to succeed in a situation using song, dance and adventure as opposed to violence," Gordon says.
