2009 to offer full slate from Activision

Written by David Stellmack







Details of future releases coming to light


Activision has taken the lid off at least some of what we can expect to see from the publisher in 2009. Much of what was announced we either already knew or at least had some idea of what the 2009 line up was going to look like.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be coming this fall. No release date or additional details were given beyond the fact that it was in development by Infinity Ward who was the original developer of the series.

After taking a year off and hopefully much needed extended planning and development, the Tony Hawk skate boarding series will return with a new release in the series. Beyond hinting that you will not be playing the game with your hands this time around, not much else is known about the new installment in the series. Series creator, Neversoft, will be handling the development of this new Tony Hawk title.

Bizarre Creations, which is best known for the Project Gotham Racing Series, has a new James Bond title in development that will be focused on driving as the primary feature of the new game. Bizarre Creations was acquired by Activision in September 2007 and this will be their first title to be released under the Activision brand. Bizarre is also said to have another new original title in development that is being described as a “Mario Kart meets Forza” title that nothing else is really known about.

As expected, Activision also has developer Neversoft hard at work on the fifth installment of the Guitar Hero series, which is being developed under the working title of Guitar Hero 5. No time frame for release was provided, but it is also suspected that this will be a late fall release.

Activision looks to have some good titles on the horizon and some additional titles that we expect to hear more about by mid next year. It is likely that the majority of the new titles will targeted at the Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3 platforms, with at least some of the titles coming to the Wii, as well.
