Spider-Man: Edge of Time has been announced by developer Beenox as their next game following the highly successful Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions released last holiday, although its not quite Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions 2.

Edge of Time is in development for unspecified platforms with a target release of this Fall.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time is a focused, action-packed adventure set in two connected and evolving timelines, from the contemporary times of the Amazing Spider-Man to the corrupted future world of Spider-Man 2099, against the backdrop of a rich, tightly crafted narrative by acclaimed Marvel veteran Peter David (co-creator of the comic book series Spider-Man 2099).

The game features all-new “cause-and-effect” gameplay, where players will see how the immediate and sometimes unexpected effects of their actions as one Spider-Man changes the timeline of the other Spider-Man. Original? Not in the least, but hopefully it will be done well regardless.

“The first Spider-Man entry by Beenox, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions was touted as one of the best Spider-Man games to date from both critics and fans,” said Vicharin Vadakan, Director, Global Brand Management. “Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a high-octane adventure and unexpected story to life in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.”

“At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them,” said Dee Brown, Studio Head, Beenox. “We want to create a totally distinct experience in Spider-Man: Edge of Time by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance.”

We’ll see more official details on the game at WonderCon 2011. Shattered Dimensions was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC, and DS so we can probably expect to see a release on the same platforms this time around.
