“Out of respect for the victims, their families and our fellow citizens, we will be postponing the launch and making minor changes to the game,” states Doornink. “While the buildings in Spider-Man 2 Enter: Electro act only as a background environment and do not explode or collapse, Activision is being extremely cautious about any images in our game that might be mistaken for the Twin Towers. We expect to ship the game well in time for this holiday season. Additionally, the delay of the game will have no material impact on our business.”
Activision today also reconfirmed the company’s earnings per share guidance for both the second fiscal quarter and the 2002 fiscal year.
