Amazing Spider-Man movie game coming next year from developer Beenox

Perhaps this is why Edge of Time felt rushed

We suppose we all knew in our hearts that Activision was going to publish a game based on the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film, but now we know for sure. Spotted at New York Comic Con was a poster advertising the title and, if the logos on the bottom are to be believed, it's being developed by Beenox, the team behind the last two Spider-Man games which were at best a mixed bag.

It isn't a shock Activision is sticking with Beenox as the Spidey developer, but we’re a little worried that it’s coming out so soon after the last Spider-Man game. If Amazing Spider-Man follows basically every other movie game Activision has published, it’ll hit stores around July 4 when the film comes out, which is almost exactly nine months after the Spider-Man: Edge of Time was launched, which is a game we weren't in love. Thinking logically, how can Beenox turn around a great game in less than a year after putting out a sub-par title this month? Our only hope is that Edge of Time disappointed because Beenox was putting their best guys on Amazing Spider-Man. That must be it, right?
