Disney Interactive's executive VP and general manager, Graham Hopper, believes that companies can't get by on just a "good" IP in this economic climate and that there needs to be substance in a game -- we're sure the "new THQ
" agrees. Hopper tells MCV
that he's "excited" about Split/Second
, the new racer from Black Rock Studio, which is the development house behind the critically acclaimed Pure
. And if that's the case, we're certain he's "super duper" excited about whatever top secret project gaming legend Warren Spector and his Junction Point Studios – which Disney acquired over two years ago now
– are working on.
Hopefully Disney Interactive's fortunes turn around with this initiative; the company certainly needs the revenue
. There's also plenty of good executive hires
available for the company to come up with something new, if this latest strategy doesn't work out.
