THQ and Blue Fang Games, known for the Zoo Tycoon series, announced that they have entered into a development agreement for a brand new videogame property for Wii, DS and PC, scheduled for release in fiscal 2010.

“With sales in excess of seven million units worldwide, Blue Fang’s Zoo Tycoon franchise has served to expand the casual gaming demographic through its accessible, compelling gameplay,” said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of publishing, THQ. “We’re confident that this new property will strongly appeal to the new generation of casual players on Nintendo Wii and DS.”

“THQ’s worldwide marketing and sales expertise, long history of strength on the Nintendo systems, and exceptional developer support make them the ideal partner for our new property,” said Hank Howie, president of Blue Fang Games. “We’ve had a very successful experience working with THQ on the DS versions of Zoo Tycoon, and we look forward to releasing the first details of our new game together with THQ later this year.”
