This is the very definition of missed opportunity. In one corner you have the original Total Recall, a science fiction classic starring 'Ahhhhnold' Schwarzenegger. In the other corner you have the pointless remake starring Colin Farrell, who hasn't been relevant since Minority Report. Guess which movie the browser-based MMO is going to be based on?
So yeah, a Total Recall MMO has been announced, and is based on the upcoming remake directed by Len Wiseman, starring Colin Farrell. To be fair though, it is a browser based MMO, and not exactly a high budget affair by the sounds of it.
"Total Recall is an international phenomenon; we know this well-known property will make a great 3D browser based game," said Sony Pictures exec Mark Caplan.
"With SEE Games and ZQGame's expertise, Total Recall will offer fans of the franchise and gamers alike an engaging and authentic experience - one that will deliver everything that the fans expect and will dovetail perfectly with the upcoming film."
Looks as though the game will be little more than marketing for the movie. Ah well. To commiserate I suggest we drop great quotes from the original movie in the comments box and reminisce!
