CEO Bobby Kotick tells it like it is.
In an interview inside the latest issue of Game Informer, CEO Bobby Kotick admitted the last couple Spider-Man games haven't been living up to fans' expectations.
"Our Spiderman games have sucked for the last five years. They are bad games," Kotick said.
"They were poorly rated because they were bad games. We went away from what is Spider-Man. It's about web-slinging. If you don't do web-slinging right, what is the fantasy of Spider-Man?"
Spider-Man Web of Shadows, Activision's last Spidey title, garnered mediocre reviews, while Spider-Man: Friend or Foe and Spider-Man 3 were also below average titles.
Details have been slim, but Activision confirmed in a financial call over the summer that the publisher plans to release a new Spider-Man title sometime in 2010. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows developer Shaba Games will not be developing the new title as Activision announced the closing of the studio this past October.
