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?
