Activision and 20th Century Fox have announced that Peter Griffin and family are coming to consoles this autumn in an all-new Family Guy videogame Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse.
The title said to offer gamers an ‘interactive Family Guy experience’ to be based on one of the most popular episodes in the series’ history which saw the regular characters recast across alternate dimensions (from a dimension where dogs took people as pets, to a world based on the stop motion show Robot Chicken.
‘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 video game,’ 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.’
For those who don’t know already Family Guy is one of the most-watched and influential shows of the last decade which has been cancelled (repeatedly) before demand and DVD sales changed Fox’s mind, with episodes of the comedy series regularly reaching over 33.5 million viewers in the US alone.
US comedian Seth MacFarlane created and scripts the show though Activision have yet to reveal whether he will also be lending his talent to the creation of the game, something clearly crucial for fans of the long-running show. Supported consoles have yet to be announced though PS3 and Xbox 360 would seem to be a safe bet.
