Ubisoft rekonfirms King Kong

Six months after its existence was accidentally revealed, the game is officially announced and will be released Q4 2005.

In an April issue of The New York Times, there was an article about the growing interplay between the game and movie industries. Among other things, the piece speculated that director Peter Jackson will likely profit more from the Ubisoft-produced game version of his King Kong remake than from the film itself.

Problem was, Ubisoft hadn't announced the King Kong game yet. However, reps for the publisher did confirm to GameSpot that the project was in the works, but refused to elaborate. Today, however, they did. In a press release issued this morning, Ubisoft trumpeted its partnership with Universal Studios and Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films to release an "interactive game" based on King Kong. The game "will be available worldwide on all platforms" when the film is released on December 14, 2005.
