Kotick demands better Spider-Man games
Speaking online this week, Activision big wig Bobby Kotick has admitted that recent Spider-Man titles haven't been as strong as he would have hoped.
"Our Spider-Man games have sucked for the last five years. They are bad games. They were poorly rated because they were bad games," Kotick told Game Informer.
"We went away from what is Spider-Man. It's about web-slinging. If you don't do web-slinging, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man? I think it was one of those wake-up calls. Even if you've been doing this a long time."
Usual Spidey developers Shaba have closed down, prompting rumour that Radical (Prototype) are now at the helm. More soon.
