Bizarre's Acti game existing IP?

Not necessarily, says PGR dev.

Bizarre Creations has kept its lips tightly sealed over suggestions that its new character-based game is one for an existing Activision IP.

Comments were made last Friday by publishing big cheese Robin Kaminsky, who told Develop magazine (well spotted, Joystiq) that part of its newly acquired development team would "probably be working on a property that Activision already owns".

When confronted with this, Bizarre told us it had not announced anything regarding what its character team would be working on for Activision - only that it would move onto a project for its new owner once work on The Club is finished.

Activision splashed out on the Project Gotham Racing 4 developer at the end of September, and said its new buy would be creating two new games for it - one racing, one character-based.

Of the Bizarre catalogue, Microsoft will retain the rights to the Project Gotham Racing series, SEGA keeps ownership of The Club, and EA will claim rights to Boom Boom Rocket. Only Geometry Wars is free to shelter under the Activision umbrella - and only once Sierra's Geometry Wars Galaxies is out the door.
