Beenox Named Lead Developer on Upcoming Spider-Man Titles
What's this? An Activision studio that's not only not being disemboweled, but is actually getting promoted? It seems Shattered Dimensions developer Beenox has broken the Activision curse and is being recognized for their quality work on what is arguably the only good Spider-Man game since...ever.
Activision, who owns the studio, announced today that Beenox will be lead developer on upcoming Spider-Man titles. "Beenox's creative vision reinvigorated the Spider-Man gaming experience among critics and fans in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions," said Patrick Kelly, Senior Vice President, Activision Studios. "We can't wait to see where this talented studio will take this franchise in the future."
Beenox is also popping the champagne corks: "We are thrilled with this opportunity to continue our close, collaborative relationship with Activision, Marvel and everyone's friendly, neighborhood hero, Spider-Man," said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox. "Being able to map out Spider-Man's interactive future gives us the creative freedom to really craft the best gaming experience for the fans." Let's just hope Beenox doesn't go the route of Treyarch, who had one decent Spidey game and then proceeded to do what they always do and run things into the ground.
