Activision to make Monster Jam

Publisher signs an exclusive multiyear agreement for the rights to the games for the series featuring larger-than-life lorries.


Santa Monica, California-based publisher Activision has acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to develop and distribute Monster Jam games. Monster trucks will soon be skidding onto "all platforms," with a first game coming for "this holiday," said a statement from the publisher.

The Monster Jam US live event series features huge trucks--including the Grave Digger, Maximum Destruction, El Toro Loco, and Monster Mutt--in racing and freestyle competitions. Live Nation (Motor Sports) president Charlie Mancuso promised a "game which will also appeal to gamers by going above and way beyond anything we could do at the live events; it will have it all."
