Activision and Nickelodeon have signed a multi-year deal to develop and publish games based on the CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show.
“Activision is a leader in the gaming industry and we are honored to have them as the global video game partner for our new hit series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” said Sherice Torres, Senior Vice President of Entertainment Products, Nickelodeon Consumer Products. “We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles.
“The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate,” said Kurt Niederloh, Vice President, Activision Publishing Minneapolis, Inc. “We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property.”
This deal gives Activision exclusive rights to develop and publish games based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license. This potentially also gives them rights to develop a game for the upcoming film by Michael Bay.
The first title from this new partnership is out this Summer.
