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

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?

    I want the feeling I had from Spiderman 2 again. I beat that literally dozens of times.

    This looks more like a broadway show poster rather than an actual movie. A broadway-tie-in videogame? Poor Spidey.

    Who developed Web Of Shadows? Get them back. They went from the best Spidey game to....Beenox. Beenox, you're terrible. Let a talented studio with even a little bit of imagination have a go at it. Your Spider-man games are garbage.

    Lol Edge of Time is NOT terrible.. it's just not great. The story is good, the graphics are nice, the gameplay does it's job. Sure it's repetitive and the whole "THE ENTIRE GAME IS IN ONE BUILDING!!" thing is BS but you have to take games for what they are in this life not for what you wish they would be. I love free roaming spider-man games, I loved web of shadows like crazy, but these games are Not those games.. it's stupid to cry over it. I do hope this game will be good though.. hell even if it gets a crap score like EoT got from most people I'm still getting it because I know I'll like it.. especially if it has a big open city with web swinging.

    I just rented EOT today. It's absolutely terrible. I've never been so bored playing a Spidey game before. Corridor after corridor and some crappy sci-fi factory rooms do not a good Spidey game make. Plus, that convoluted plot, timers THAT DON'T STOP FOR CUTSCENES and indenti-skin robots all the way through. BUT.. The actual mechanics are great, both Spidey's move fluidly and the combat is great. The graphics in the cut scenes are good also. So, if they bring back New York and keep the mechanics? It might not suck..might. Unlike that hideous new movie costume.

    Man... Is as if activision was actively doing everything half arsed on PURPOSE. With this and an upcoming MiB game, they are making it even easier than ever to hate them AND ignore anything they publish. Which is honestly something I'm thankful for, I'd be actually kind pissed if they published a good game i'd actually like to play.

    Why don't they seem to realize that Spiderman 2 was amazing and they should violently ape that until their game is great? WHY?! Primero
