I hope you enjoyed the last Spider-Man title from Activision, because it has been announced that Beenox, the studio behind the title, will now be lead developer on any upcoming Spider-Man titles down the road. The decision really was a no-brainer on Activision’s part as Beenox delivered one of the best games that the wall-crawler has seen in years. Don’t believe me? Well then you can always just read my glowing review of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions. Here’s a few quotes from Activison, Beenox, and Marvel all from today’s announcement.
