Activision delays Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man 2 is the latest game to be delayed out of respect for the recent national tragedy.


Activision has announced that it has postponed the release of Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro for the Sony PlayStation. The game was slated for release later this week. A specific scene in the game, which shows Spider-Man atop a New York skyscraper resembling the World Trade Center, will be removed. The company said that the game is being delayed out of respect for the victims of last week's attacks on the World Trade Center.

"While the buildings in Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro act only as a background environment and do not explode or collapse, Activision is being extremely cautious about any images in our game that might be mistaken for the Twin Towers," Ron Doornink, president and COO of Activision, said. "We expect to ship the game well in time for this holiday season. Additionally, the delay of the game will have no material impact on our business."

A new release date has not been announced at this time. The game has been rated E by the ESRB.
