New Family Guy videogame coming soon
What the deuce?
It seems like the crazy minds behind Family just aren’t content with taking over our TVs. Activision and 20th Century Fox today announced that a new Family Guy videogame would be released later this year.
“Fans of Family Guy will love that we’ve taken some of the series’ most iconic and memorable moments and built them into an impressive and uncensored video game,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President, Activision. “Anyone who watches the show will appreciate how much we have adhered to its rich and twisted universe and characters.”
The TV show reaches around 33.5 million viewers in the US alone, and has enjoyed considerable success with DVD sales and movie spin-offs. Picking on everything from politics to social stigmas, Family Guy knows no limits in its often dark humor, and no topic is off limits.
This isn’t the first time that the franchise has dabbled in videogames – back in 2006 the Family Guy videogame debuted on the PS2, Xbox, and PSP platforms to lukewarm reviews, and the show has also seen trivia games released for the iOS platform. Still with Activision at the helm there’s hope yet that the game will be able to encompass the true Family Guy spirit.
And if not we can send Stewie back in time to stop it all from happening.
