"Beenox has done a tremendous job showcasing the essence of Spider-Man while pushing new creative boundaries with Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions," said Todd Jefferson, director of games at Marvel Entertainment's Global Digital Media Group. "We look forward to working with Beenox on creating new Spider-Man game experiences."

What exactly are these new Spidey games the Activision subsidiary is working on? While Beenox has previously mused that it might fancy a whole game based around the '2099' or 'Noir' Spider-Men featured in Shattered Dimensions, what's actually happening remains a Spidey secret for now. We can say, though, is that everyone in today's press release seems jolly excited about the whole affair.

"Beenox's creative vision reinvigorated the Spider-Man gaming experience among critics and fans in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions," said Activision Studios senior VP Patrick Kelly. "We can't wait to see where this talented studio will take this franchise in the future."

Beenox studio head Dee Brown chipped in too, saying that "Being able to map out Spider-Man's interactive future gives us the creative freedom to really craft the best gaming experience for the fans."

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions was released for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and Nintendo DS last year. The DS edition was handled by Griptonite Games.
