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.

Activision’s Senior Vice President, Patrick Kelly:

“Beenox’s creative vision reinvigorated the Spider-Man gaming experience among critics and fans in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, We can’t wait to see where this talented studio will take this franchise in the future.”

Beenox’s Studio Head, Dee Brown:

“We are thrilled with this opportunity to continue our close, collaborative relationship with Activision, Marvel and everyone’s friendly, neighborhood hero, Spider-Man, 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.”

Marvel’s Director of Games, Todd Jefferson:

“Beenox has done a tremendous job showcasing the essence of Spider-Man while pushing new creative boundaries with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, We look forward to working with Beenox on creating new Spider-Man game experiences.”
