THQ will publish Splashdown 2
THQ announced today that it will be publishing Splashdown 2 this summer. This move comes after the acquisition of Rainbow Studios last year, as it will still be developing the game. Previously, Splashdown 2 was intended for Infogrames who published the original title, but both PS2 and Xbox versions will now be covered by THQ.
"Rainbow Studios has consistently delivered some of the most innovative interactive entertainment products over the past 15 years," stated Brian Farrell, president and CEO, THQ. "Building on the retail success and critical acclaim of the original Splashdown, we are extremely excited to have Splashdown 2 be the first Rainbow Studios title published by THQ."
"Splashdown 2 is set to redefine the racing genre with its amazing graphics and cinematic gameplay," stated Scott Novis, vice president, Rainbow Studios. "We are thrilled to be able to utilize THQ’s unparalleled publishing expertise for the project--this is just the beginning of THQ and Rainbow’s partnership to produce true cutting-edge products that push the technology envelope."
