Activision announced this afternoon that it's developing an all-new Men in Black video game, which is launching as a standalone title to coincide with the theatrical release of Men in Black III in Spring 2012.
The game will feature “action-packed, yet light-hearted gameplay mixed with edge-of-your-seat shooting excitement from the universe’s most elite peacekeeping force.” Utilising the rich mythology of the Men In Black universe, the game’s original story will build on the history of the series to bring back familiar faces.
“The Men In Black franchise is an unbeatable starting point to deliver a genre-bending gaming experience with a level of production value on par with Hollywood,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing.
Mark Caplan, Vice President of Licensing at Sony Pictures Entertainment, stated, “With Activision bringing the Men In Black universe to life on next gen consoles for the first time, the Men In Black video game will be both familiar to fans, an exciting beginning for the uninitiated, and revolutionary for the franchise.”
Men in Black is planned to launch in Spring 2012 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
