You should read the original comics. They are pure badassery.

Then they wouldn't be teenagers. People always forget the "Teenage" part.

On topic: I think the game might be decent, but not good. It will be developed and released within a year and possibly rushed, with several content made into DLC.

There goes the hope of a decent TMNT title.
guitarded77  +   1024d ago
I don't know... Teenage Mutant Ninja Warfare 4 could be pretty awesome. I'm sure it will be the best first person ninja game on the market.

and the chances on Rocksteady making one

aw man that would have been SICK
NukaCola  +   1024d ago
Same thoughts, really would prefer RS to handle this. Activision will turn this into a garbage IP like they do with everything they get their hands on.
Adamated  +   1024d ago
I thought you meant giving Rocksteady and Bebop their own fps game... I was like... wha...O_o
3-4-5  +   1024d ago
What about Bebop ?

jakmckratos  +   1023d ago
come now..that was about as big of a rumour as they come. Rocksteady making a game where one of the bosses would have been named rocksteady? too perfect. THINK ABOUT IT
BaltimoreNovak  +   1024d ago
I can see it now, 14.99 DLC for Master Splinter's side missions, exclusive to 360 first.
AWBrawler  +   1024d ago
I spat water all over a work computer
Quadraxis  +   1024d ago
Ohhh that can't be good.
mwjw696  +   1024d ago
O come on its not bad enough that Michael Bay is going to fuck up the Turtles movies! Now they are going to let Activision fuck up the games! Well there goes my childhood.
ninjagoat  +   1024d ago
Here comes the DLC :/.
Roccetarius  +   1024d ago
Activision will run this into the ground as well, which is happening to Spyro right now.
AWBrawler  +   1024d ago
I actually like the skylanders games
Summons75  +   1024d ago
Bye bye fun tmnt games you'll be complete dead in a year :/
Chris558  +   1024d ago
When was the last time tmnt game came out?
mynameisEvil  +   1024d ago
There was Turtles in Time: Reshelled in 2009. SO there's your answer.
kopite96  +   1024d ago
should have gone back to konami, remake of the arcade version
kirbyu  +   1024d ago
Who here thinks they should remake the classic Ninja Turtle games?

And, if THQ hadn't went bankrupt would they have made the TMNT games? Because THQ always made the Nickelodeon games.
LOL_WUT  +   1024d ago
Me, I loved that teenage mutant ninja turtles game on the NES
Coltrane_C  +   1024d ago
Knowing Activision it will be a FPS with exclusive DLC for the highest bidder
strigoi814  +   1024d ago
what the hell?!! Rockksteady could give this game more vengence and appeal
kopite96  +   1024d ago
they should have made a TMNT ultimate HD collection, arcade version, turtles in time or hyperstone heist, torne fighters. if they base it on the nickleodeon show its going to be very child like.
JohnApocalypse  +   1024d ago
Give the licence to High Moon or Raven plzz Activision
Eldyraen  +   1024d ago
Forgot about High Moon but personally I'd love Raven to run with it and give us all a new 4 player locale coop game like Xmen/Marvel games we haven't seen in a while. It would suit the TMNT series perfectly IMO.
Soldierone  +   1024d ago
Noooooooooo! WHY!

You'd think WB would pick this up.... dangit.
JohnApocalypse  +   1024d ago
WB is more then just a game publisher. They're kinda rivals against Paramount
Soldierone  +   1024d ago
Paramount doesn't have a game division anymore.( ? ) Companies like that do normally work together behind the scenes.

Like Sony and WB do all the time.

However anyone but Activision would have been nice. I'm a big Turtles fan, and this sucks lol First Michal bay ruining the movies, and now we get an "Fps turtles" :P lol
kirbyu  +   1024d ago
Wasn't it Warner Bros. that Nick bought Ninja Turtles from?
Lionalliance  +   1024d ago
Ron_Danger  +   1024d ago
First Michael Bay ruins them, now Acti wants kill them...
kirbyu  +   1024d ago
I highly doubt Activision WANTS to. If the game they make sucks it'll be made sucky by accident.
coolmast3r  +   1024d ago
Poor Turtles! :*(
Tzuno  +   1024d ago
I want a final fight style game with turtles. Or a game dark and gritty like Batman Arkham asylum was.
Ron_Danger  +   1024d ago
A final fight game with the turtles?! We're you born in the late 90's?? All the old Tirtles games were final fight style (NES, SNES, and Genisis) and not even Acti has the balls to release a 2D side scroller game on a disc. If you want a final fight style Turtles game right now though, Turtles in Time HD was released on PSN and Live a few years ago

"Activision acquires Ninja Turtles licence"

R.I.P Ninja Turtles
Eldyraen  +   1024d ago
I may not be a huge fan of Activision either, but there is always hope this will turn out more like Spider-Man 2 (published by Activision as well) compared to many of their other titles. I actually doubt it will end up being open world (suits Spider-Man better) but I've still enjoyed several of Activision's comic book/cartoon inspired games (not all by any means).

Granted I'd rather the license went to another company but Activision still has several good developers with experience making games that would suit TMNT perfectly (as someone stated--Raven would be perfect and allow for 4 player coop and character switches such as Xmen/Marvel games of the past). I rather miss all those style games compared to PS2 days (arcade releases aren't the same even though a couple have been good--and PC just lacks locale multiplayer).

Just saying it isn't necessarily a bad thing if Activision gives it to the right team.

Coming this November.... (and Next November... And Next November)

If Beenox did what they did for Amazing SPiderman but did a slightly better job I could be happy with this.
Squall5005  +   1024d ago
Well it's good news if you're a massive Ninja Turtles fan. Look's like you'll get a new game every year and shit loads of overpriced DLC to go with it. You lucky sods.
NYC_Gamer  +   1024d ago
It's sad because the games will be mediocre
DarkBlood  +   1024d ago
RTheRebel  +   1024d ago
teenage mutant soldier turtles
Williamson  +   1023d ago
I wish rocksteady were making a tmnt game thats as dark as the comics. The new cartoon is great but the 2003 series will always be my favorite, although after the fifth season it started going downhill imo.
ACEMANWISE  +   1023d ago
Agreed. The first season was epic. I noticed the fluid animation started to dwindle over time also.
Max-Zorin  +   1023d ago
Activion of ALL people?
