Here's What Activision's Development Studios Are Up To


Posted April 23, 2009 - By r_pad

Attention Activision fans! Just in case you've been wondering what Activision Blizzard is doing with its army of development studios, Variety has put together a nifty list that lets you keep tabs on everyone from Infinity Ward to Shaba to Treyarch. Here's the skinny:

Beenox: DreamWorks Animation games; "Guitar Hero" compilation "Smash Hits"
Bizarre Creations: "James Bond" games and an original racing title
Blizzard Entertainment: "World of Warcraft"; "Starcraft"; "Diablo"; something new
Budcat: Playstation 2 versions of "Guitar Hero" (which sell surprisingly well)
Freestyle Games: "DJ Hero"
High Moon: "Transformers"
Infinity Ward: "Modern Warfare"
Luxoflux: "Transformers"; DreamWorks Animation titles
Neversoft: Lead "Guitar Hero" developer for PS3 and 360
Radical: "Prototype" and "Spider-Man"
Raven Software: "Singularity," "Wolfenstein," Marvel games like "Wolverine"
Shaba: "Spider-Man"
7 Studios: "Scratch: the Ultimate DJ"; "DJ Hero" (7 was just acquired a few weeks ago and it's in the middle of a lawsuit, so its role is still TBD)
Toys for Bob: DreamWorks Animation games
Treyarch: "Call of Duty"; "James Bond"
Vicarious Visions: Core "Guitar Hero" titles for the Wii; other ports for the DS

And yes, one of the reasons I posted this article (aside from the useful information) was so I could reuse Ars Technica's totally awesome picture of Bobby Kotick.

Any of Activision's studios catch your eye? I'm particularly interested in seeing what Radical can do with the Spider-Man franchise. Prototype meets Spider-Man? I'm sold!!!
