Activision gets Worms

Activision signs a publishing agreement with Team 17 and its Worms series of games.


Activision has announced that it has signed an agreement with developer Team 17 that will allow the company to publish Worms 3 and an additional Worms game for multiple console platforms and the PC. Worms 3 will use a fully deformable 3D landscape, and it will retain many of the unique weapons that have appeared in previous Worms games.

"We are thrilled to be introducing Worms onto the next-generation console systems," said Kathy Vrabeck, executive vice president of global publishing and brand management at Activision. "The franchise has sold more than seven million units worldwide since its inception in 1995. Worms' unique humor, instant playability, and addictive gameplay have remained popular across two generations of hardware, with the franchise appearing on almost every platform. Now delivered in 3D, the game is sure to be even more popular than its predecessors, drawing in a new generation of gamers around the globe."

Worms 3 is currently scheduled to ship sometime in 2003.
