Spider-Man 2 delayed
Activision has announced that the release of Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro for the PSX has been postponed. Expected for a release date later this week, Activision has decided to remove a specific scene where Spider-Man is on top of a New York skyscraper bearing resemblance to the World Trade Center. Attempting to show the up most respect for the victims of Tuesday’s tragedy, Activision expects the release date to be before the holidays, but gives no exact date as of yet.
"While the buildings in Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro act only as a background environment and do not explode or collapse, Activision is being extremely cautious about any images in our game that might be mistaken for the Twin Towers," Ron Doornink, president and COO of Activision, said. "We expect to ship the game well in time for this holiday season. Additionally, the delay of the game will have no material impact on our business."
