More than 5,000 iconic comic book characters will soon be in the hands of Disney, raising serious questions about the future of Marvel video game titles from Activision, Sega, THQ, and the upcoming MMO from Gazillion Entertainment.

Disney Making New Tr2n Game And Tron Movie Slated for 2011?

50°
271w ago - Disney Interactive Studios is rumored to be developing a brand new Tron game, said to be released to tie-in with the new Tron movie in 2011.

If true, it is certainly going to make a lot of sci-fi geeks and gamers 'of a certain age' very happy indeed.

To quote: Disney releases the sequel to 1982's videogame-themed Tron, currently under the working title of Tr2n, in 2011.

The rumors that a game is also in development emerged from reports in Hollywood trade paper Variety, backed up by reports over on The Cut Scene blog ramping up belief in the (not really majorly surprising) rumor that a Tr2n game is in development.





Disney Interactive Studios recently laid off 30 staff at Propaganda Games (the creators of last year's Turok) and have merged two of their six internal developers, Fall Line and Avalanche, to focus on games based on Disney animated films.

Films like Tr2n perhaps? Although we would imagine Propaganda, with its focus on adult-themed games, might be better placed to handle dev duties on this one...

Stay tuned for official confirmation (or denial)...
 

Rumor: Disney to offer official LittleBigPlanet Downloadable Content

50°
293w ago - Thuway, a member of NeoGAF, claims that he has learned at PAX that LittleBigPlanet will have Official Disney downloadable content.

In addition to this revelation, Infamous is targeted for a May 2009 release.

To quote: (BTW- Insomniac, he is seriously one of the most genuine PR guys I've ever met. He is truly a class act.)

Secondly, while the majority of people at the event just play the previews, I like to take time out and actually talk to the developers and get insight into gaming production. I found out some amazing bomb shells, most of which I have my mouth zipped on, but here are two things that won't get me in trouble I hope.

1. LBP will have official Disney DLC.
2. Infamous is targeted for May 2009.

Finally, major props to the editors at 1up, and Bombcast. The Gameworks after party was pretty rad. The guys did a great job of showing that they were gamers, just like you or I, and had a great time treating readers / listeners like peers and colleagues.

I talked to Shane in particular, for God knows how long, oh I know he's reading this and knows who I am. It was like a conversation out of an episode of the 1up Show.
