It has been an open secret for some time now, but Activision has finally confirmed its multi-year deal with Nickleodeon to develop and publish new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games.
Three games are planned, the first of which will arrive “this summer.” No platforms, or even a developer, were confirmed, though we do know that the games will be based around the new animated show, which debuted last year across the world. A second series is expected later this year.
"The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate. We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property," ," said Activision Publishing vice president Kurt Niederloh.
"We are confident that these upcoming games will take gamers through interactive environments and action-packed adventures that truly capture the essence, tone and exciting elements of the Turtles," added Sherice Torres, senior VP of entertainment products for Nickelodeon Consumer Products.
