The ongoing Writer's Guild strike
may soon impact even the games industry. While most of the copy writers working on games are not a part of the guild, via Eurogamer
comes a Variety article about a possible Hollywood writer's migration to other media
. "While the WGA has made no secret that it would like to eventually cover vidgame writing, it hasn't pushed the issue yet and is allowing members to work on games during the strike. 'It has been an interesting shift," says one tenpercenter who focuses on vidgames. "The literary agents are now saying, 'Why don't we get our clients over there during the strike?' even though in the past they thought the money wasn't good enough or the work is too demanding.'"
