New Spider-Man game ‘is not shit

Activision says its new Spider-Man title will answer the criticisms made by the firm’s outspoken CEO Bobby Kotick.

The Activision boss said in January that recent Spider-Man games had ‘sucked’.

But the publisher is confident that its latest Spider-Man title – Shattered Dimensions – won’t be lambasted for its quality this time around.

Shattered Dimensions is not shit,” associate producer Kevin Umbricht told MCV at a special Activision showcase.

The last few games have been seen as financial or critical disappointments. I don’t think that’s necessarily true, there are a lot of hardcore fans that liked Web of Shadows. It depends on what type of player you are.

We are all trying to make a great Spider-Man game, regardless of what the last ones were. We all have the same intentions so perhaps Bobby’s comments were a little harsh.

Shattered Dimensions appeals to a broad audience and adds a few layers we haven’t seen in past Spider-Man games.”

Shattered Dimensions takes place across four Spider-Man universes, including the traditional setting, a noir world set in the 1940s and a futuristic zone. The game is due on 360, PS3, DS and Wii in Q3.
