Amongst all the doom and gloom of yesterday’s Activision news shines a ray of light. 2011 will not only see a new game based on the fantastic ‘Family Guy’ animation, but Spider-Man and Transformers will also be making an appearance.
Activision Publishing boss, Eric Hirshberg, had the following to say:
“This year, we plan to release two movie-based titles. An all-new X-Men game, tied to the feature film X-Men: First Class, and Transformers 3, which will coincide with Michael Bay’s blockbuster movie release.
Also, this year, we plan to launch games based on the best-selling Spider-Man franchise, the toy phenomenon Bakugan, hit TV shows Wipeout and Family Guy, as well as the latest release in the long-standing Cabela’s Hunting franchise.
These are all strong franchises with passionate niche audiences that can achieve repeatable and profitable success.”
Giggity giggity goo!
