Major publisher Activision has confirmed that the company is currently in development on three launch titles for both the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii (formerly code named Revolution) platforms. According to a press release, the company has been working closely with both Sony Computer Entertainment America and Nintendo on the development of Call of Duty 3 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, which will be released on both next-generation systems, as well as on the Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Activision also is developing two completely different games based on the Tony Hawk franchise -- Tony Hawk's Project 8 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam for the Nintendo's new Wii system. In fiscal 2007, the company will release 10 games for the three next-generation platforms, including the titles listed above, as well as X-Men: The Official Game for the Xbox 360. Additionally, at the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Activision will unveil a sneak peak from Spider-Man 3 video game that "demonstrates the in-game model of the renowned Super Hero and the power of next-generation technology" - target platforms and release date for the game have not yet been revealed. Activision's Windows PC lineup is led by id Software's Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, the online team-based first-person action game. Other notable titles to be shown at E3 include The Movies: Stunts & Effects Expansion Pack from Peter Molyneux's now Microsoft-acquired Lionhead, Dreamworks animation adaptation Over the Hedge, and new poker title World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions. "Activision will showcase a diverse and well-rounded game slate at this year's E3 convention," said Mike Griffith, President and CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. "We expect that our well-established brands and multi-platform development strategy should continue to provide us with an advantage in the new console era. The next-generation console systems feature significant visual and audio enhancements that will continue making video games more accessible to audiences worldwide."
