Activision confirmed back in January that "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" developer Beenox would be taking the lead on all future Spidey games for the publisher. We'll see the first fruits borne from that announcement at the annual WonderCon gathering in Los Angeles in a few week when Activision and Beenox announce the next game featuring Marvel Comics' nimble superhero.
The news comes straight from the show's website, which confirms that the presentation will be happening on Saturday, April 2, from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. The festivities will kick off with a look back at "Shattered Dimensions" with members of the Beenox team, who will discuss the lessons learned from the studio's first outing with Spider-Man. After that, you'll get the first "exclusive details, screenshots and videos" on the game.
Here's the official event details from WonderCon's website:
Marvel, Activision, and acclaimed developer Beenox are headed to WonderCon with all-new Spider-Man videogame content! First, take a tour with Beenox down memory lane of the award-winning 'Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions,' and discuss their post-launch reactions and what key learnings from the fans they are applying to future games. Next, be the first to check out exclusive details, screenshots and videos of the next Spider-Man game, with game development talent from Beenox, acclaimed Marvel writer Peter David (co-creator of 'Spider-Man 2099'), voiceover talent Josh Keaton (voice of 'Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man' and 'Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions') and Marvel's VP of games production, TQ Jefferson.
"Shattered Dimensions" didn't suck at all, stripping away the open-world elements of the more recent movie spinoff games to focus instead on a more focused narrative experience, one that is influenced directly by the comics and appeals to fans of the same.
