Activision Adopts Ty
The last two games in the Ty the Tasmanian Tiger series have been under the umbrella of Electronic Arts. The first two entries in the series have sold two million units to date. Krome Studios, the largest Australian developer, agreed to co-publish their latest, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3, with Activision Value for a fall 2005 release. The game will appear on the Game Boy Advance, GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox.
Activision Value is the budget arm of Activision. Last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue was an unusually low priced game for an Electronic Arts title, $19.99. The budget direction of the series might have been a reason for the departure from EA and the pick-up of the license by Activision Value.
“We are pleased to have found such a fantastic and enthusiastic partner in Activision,” says CEO and Co-founder Robert Walsh. “TY the Tasmanian Tiger series is a well-known and loved property so having their support and prowess will help to further champion and heighten the awareness of our yellow furry hero in the marketplace.”
