Publisher Activision Blizzard today confirmed that, as expected, it plans to unleash a deluge of fresh entries in its popular franchises by the end of calendar year 2010, including new Call of Duty, Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero and Spider-Man games.

In addition, the company reaffirmed that Blizzard's anticipated sequel StarCraft II and World of Warcraft expansion Cataclysm are slated to arrive sometime during the year.

The new Tony Hawk entry will once again utilize the motion-sensitive skateboard peripheral released alongside Robomodo's Tony Hawk: Ride in 2009.

Rumors have previously suggested that this year's Call of Duty entry will be handled by Call of Duty: World at War developer Treyarch, and could be set in the Vietnam era.

UPDATE: Along with word of the new games, Activsion outlined their release windows.

  • I think I can say I will be perfectly fine never buying another activision product for the next 2-3 years. I've got CoD up to my poop chute, I'm good on THAT. Poor spiderman hasn't had but one good game in the past decade, they should realyl stop raping his corpse.

    Do people still play tony hawk? Have you people not heard of Skate? I find it hard to believe that anyone would want to play tony hawks over the top retarded fake skating game instead of a game that actually tries to emulate skating. Yeah, it's hard, but when you pull off a sick combo, you know YOU did it, not the monkey in the machine.

    Who buys guitar hero GAMES anymore? I still buy tracks for rock band, but I don't feel I should ever have to buy the GAME again. Theres DLC, this music game thing needs to evolve in that direction, because Activision is going to kill it as if GH kicked their dog. Basically, if the whole genre doesn't evolve, people are going to lose interest (they already have, no one gives a shit about those games anymore I know IRL). Who wants to buy a $60 "game" that is really just new songs (and animations, whoopity do), more than half of which you don't want. It should ALL be DLC at this point. Download the songs you want and nothing else.

    I do like the band specific versions though. If you like Metallica for instance, it has tons of that and music that inspired the band, or just music the band likens to their own. Same kind of deal with beatles.
