THQ to Launch DisneyPixar’s WALL●E Across All Major Gaming Systems
Gamers Will Bring Humanity Back to Earth in Summer 2008
THQ Inc. today announced plans to release the WALL●E video game in conjunction with the film’s eagerly awaited theatrical debut from DisneyPixar in the summer of 2008. WALL●E is anticipated to launch across all major gaming systems including the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Wii, Nintendo DS, Windows PC and Mac, as well as wireless devices.
The long-running relationship between THQ and DisneyPixar has achieved shipments of more than 35 million units worldwide. THQ’s current agreement with DisneyPixar, which was announced in 2004, includes rights to create games based on four newly created DisneyPixar film properties. Last year’s Ratatouille video game was the first property released by THQ under this agreement.
WALL●E is expected to release this summer and will mark THQ’s next installment in the company’s well-established and successful association with DisneyPixar. Development for WALL●E will be led by THQ’s internal Heavy Iron Studios.
