Los Angeles – SEE Virtual Worlds announced on Tuesday that it
has secured a deal with the estate of late pop star Michael Jackson to create
"Planet Michael," a massively multiplayer online virtual world. Set
to launch in late 2011, the site will be a "themed-planet" within
MindArk’s Entropia Universe, and styled as "an immersive virtual space
themed after iconic visuals drawn from Michael’s music, his life and the global
issues that concerned him."

Planet Michael will be a free-to-download
world with a social gaming focus, but "the real world in-game economy features
gameplay monetization that allows players to take on dozens of different
occupations and in certain instances, contribute to a charitable cause at the
same time."
