Mission Impossible 2 locked in for PS2.

  Infogrames went on record today and announced that they have gained worldwide rights to publish videogames based on the Mission Impossible 2 license. This deal will also allow the French publisher to publish MI:2 games on multiple-platforms, the Playstation 2 and XBox are currently the only versions announced. Mission Impossible 2 is right up there with The Matrix in the action category. Directed by John Woo (whose credits include another favorite of mine: Face/Off), and starring Tom Cruise, MI: 2 is easily one of the most intense and not too overcomplicated action flicks in a long time. It got multiple twists in the story, with the inclusion of many ironic events, -that whole mask thing was such a kick ass feature-. If the hired developer is able to do a splendid job, hopefully MI:2 turns into a sensational videogame, and lives up the movie. MI:2 had an amazing income, it was one of the highest grossing movies of 2000 ($545 million), Dr. Suess': How the Grinch Stole Christmas just slightly dominating MI:2, with $550 million.

   "Infogrames is very pleased to accept the challenge of creating a videogame to match the excitement, tension and action of Mission: Impossible-2," said Rob Watson, senior vice president of worldwide licensing for Infogrames. "This is an example of one of the things we do best -- licensing powerhouse entertainment properties and creating interactive magic. Along with other recently signed high-profile properties, 'M:I-2' will be part of a series of the most exciting Infogrames games players have ever seen."

   "Infogrames has a proven record of taking well-known licenses and creating cutting-edge, mass market games on both established and next generation platforms," stated Pam Newton, vice president of Viacom Consumer Products. "Because of this, VCP is confident the Mission: Impossible-2 game will match the movie's heart pounding action and international intrigue that has created a league of such devoted fans."

   No release date has been set for MI:2, but signs point to late 2001, early 2002.
