2K Games and Twentieth Century Fox announced today an exclusive agreement to develop and publish “some freakin’ sweet” video games based on the hit television series Family Guy. Working closely with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, 2K Games will bring the hilarious world of Peter, Brian, the tyrannical tyke Stewie and all of Quahog, Rhode Island to current generation consoles (PlayStation 2 and Xbox, if 2K Games’ history says anything) this fall.
Developed by High Voltage Software, Family Guy will feature the offbeat humor from the show’s writers in an action/adventure style of gameplay, focusing on the lovable oaf Peter Griffin, his world domination-obsessed son Stewie and their talking, martini-drinking dog, Brian. Throughout the game, these popular characters wreak havoc in many of the same locations depicted in the animated series.
“The irreverent and satirical humor from Family Guy that has made the show a smash hit opens up exciting and untapped possibilities in game development,” said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. “We are looking forward to bringing the colorful Family Guy characters to life in a one-of-a-kind action/adventure style game.”
