Activision Gives Insight on 2008’s Lineup

During their quarterly conference call yesterday, Activision let loose their 2008 development plans. Call of Duty 5, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, and the next Guitar Hero are only a few games they’re bringing to the Wii this year. Thanks to the guys over at, we and the rest of the world, have gotten the scoop!  Mike Griffith, President and CEO of Activision Publishing also talked about  the Tony Hawk series getting an overhaul.

“Over the past six months, we’ve been working reengineer the Tony Hawk brand. We started with a deep dive evaluation of our approach to the genre and new trends in the videogame market. Then we conducted a significant amount of consumer research and testing to better understand the types of innovations that consumers want from this brand.”
This may come as good news to fans of the series or a complete upset. I, for one, never really got into the series myself so I don’t have an opinion one way or another.

Whether you’re crying for joy or saddness right now over the Hawk, there’s a silver lining in the clouds. Check out Activision’s Spring, Fall, and early part of ’09 lineups…
