This sort of thing tends to happen at conventions - though DC/Wildstorm was apparently planning on announcing it had acquired the X-Files license today, it was prematurely leaked today.
During the X-Files panel in the IGN.com Theater, when asked if there were plans to continue the series in other media if television or film were not possible, Chris Carter mentioned that DC/Wildstorm had acquired the license. He also mentioned the company was planning on making this announcement tomorrow but sadly things said in the IGN.com Theater don't quite stay in the theater.
X-Files is the third license DC has acquired this week. Just before the convention began, the publisher issued two press releases regarding the Prototype and Gears of War properties. No creative team details about any of these projects have been released yet, but Gears and Prototype are scheduled to be released later this year.
IGN will bring you the latest details on X-Files, from the new comic book series to the new film, X-Files: I Want To Believe. We'll also bring you the latest from the New York Comic-Con, including interviews, previews and panel news.
