During E3, IGNCube sat down with Activision’s Larry Goldberg, who spoke positively about the GameCube and confirmed that Tony Hawk 3 is in development for GBA! WHOOO!
At E3, IGNCube got to interview Activision’s Larry Goldberg, who is executive vice president of world studios. He had several positive things to say about the GameCube but stated that Activision wouldn’t be releasing games for the system this year. He also confirms that Tony Hawk 3 is being developed for Game Boy Advance!
NOTE: Although previously confirmed, Larry Goldberg reiterated that Activision currently has two "official" GameCube projects, Spider-Man and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, although they will not be released in 2001. Still, Larry's positive comments make it likely we can expect these games and more from Activision starting next year!
Here’s some highlights:
IGNcube: Compared to other systems in importance where do you place GameCube right now?
Larry Goldberg: It is an important system, it really is. We have only announced two games at this moment, and that is all I really can talk about. We want to support Nintendo in the GameCube as well as in the handheld market. We have a good long-term relationship with Nintendo. We're looking forward to doing business with them on the GameCube for years to come.
IGNcube: So we can expect to see more of the Activision franchises?
Larry Goldberg: I certainly hope so.
IGNcube: You've already announced Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 for Game Boy Advance. The game looks amazing -- you probably think it will do really well?
Larry Goldberg: I think it will do really well. I know that Nintendo is really excited about it. Everybody who sees it just can't believe that it is a handheld game. We're already beginning to work on Tony Hawk 3 for Game Boy Advance.
IGNcube: Same development team?
Larry Goldberg: Yes, same team, Vicarious Vision. They are going to be making a bunch of Game Boy Advance titles for us for years to come. Spider-Man looks good. We have a strong strategic relationship with those guys. Actually we have strong strategic relationships with what we consider to be a few of the top Game Boy developers out there, including Hotgen and Digital Eclipse. It's going to be great.
