Activision To Publish Games Based on TV's Family Guy and Wipeout

In even more news from what has to be one of the most action-packed investor calls of all time, Activision revealed that it's not just in the business of canceling games. Today, it was announced that the company plans to make a slew of products in the next year based on TV and movie licenses, including the Fox animated series Family Guy and ABC's gonzo obstacle course reality show Wipeout.

Activision also plans to release a new Spider-Man game, a new Bakugan game, and titles based on the upcoming X-Men and Transformers movies. That's a whole lotta licensing, kiddies.

In addition, G4 reports that Activision will announce a "new gaming universe" at the upcoming Toy Fair in New York City, and speculates that it's likely a game aimed at children.

And by the way, Mr. Kotick: STILL WAITING for The Cleveland Show: The Game. (Actually, I'm fine with waiting.)
