The Female First reported that the 'Thriller' singer will be the main character in the computer adventure, for which he had already recorded voice-over lines shortly before his death.
"I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games," said a worker on the game which would be produced by singer's firm MJJ Productions.
He also said the story follows as Jackson uses various music and dance related abilities to defeat enemies while on a quest to save kidnapped children from the hands of the evil 'Mr Big'.
Some of his biggest hits, including 'Beat It' and 'Smooth Criminal', are also included into the game.
