Following the recent rumours of a new videogame based on the hugely popular Family Guy animated series, Activision has today announced that the Griffin family and their friends from Quahog are coming to gaming consoles this autumn. Appropriately titled Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, the title will offer gamers an interactive Family Guy experience inspired by one of the most popular and notable episodes in the series’ history.
“Fans of Family Guy will love that we’ve taken some of the series’ most iconic and memorable moments and built them into an impressive and uncensored videogame,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President, Activision. “Anyone who watches the show will appreciate how much we have adhered to its rich and twisted universe and characters.”
Family Guy is one of the most-watched and influential shows of the last decade, reaching over 33.5 million viewers weekly in the U.S., and is the number one TV show on Facebook with more than 40 million ‘likes’. The new console game from Fox and Activision intends to tap into the core components of the Family Guy spirit.
Jeffrey Godsick, President of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products said, “With Activision at the helm, we’ve found a world class partner for a Family Guy console videogame. Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse will utilize the source material, including the talented voice cast and writers, authentic humour and subversive spirit of the series, giving fans a whole new way to interact with their favourite show.”
More details about the console game will be announced in the near future, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse.
