Take-Two Secures Fantastic Four Licensing

One day after Sega secured the rights to Iron Man, Marvel Entertainment has abandoned Activision and sided with Take-Two Interactive for their next-gen partnership...at least as far as Fantastic Four is concerned.

The licensing for a company like Marvel is a big deal in the game industry, because it comes loaded with the potential for multiple titles featuring the likes of Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four, and X-Men. And according to Marvel's executive vice president, David Maisel, Take-Two will be heading up the Fantastic Four sequel when the movie is released next year.

"That is a new [licensing] relationship for that game which will be released with the movie next year," said Maisel. "And that game is going on schedule, as well."

Activision had previously worked with developers Beenox, 7 Studios, and Torus Games on the original Fantastic Four game, but now, it seems they're passing up the rights to more superhero games. However, the publisher does retain the rights to Spider-Man and X-Men for now.

There were no details concerning which next-gen platforms the Fantastic Four sequel would appear on, but it's probably a safe bet that it'll be multiplatform. When an official announcement arises concerning more Fantastic Four info, we'll make sure to keep you updated.
