While most would agree that Spider-Man video games have improved by literal leaps and bounds in the past three decades, there's been some backlash against current rights holder Activision for resting on its laurels since the release of "Spider-Man 2" in 2004 and its more or less redeco "Ultimate Spider-Man" two years after. But according to Kotaku, an upcoming issue of GamePro Magazine may provide apathetic Spider-fans with a glimmer of hope in the form of the franchise's next installment, the mysteriously titled "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions."

Aside from the title, there's not a ton to go on until Activision makes an official announcement about the game. What we do know, however, is that Canadian development team Radical Entertainment will helm the release. Given their experience building "Hulk: Ultimate Destruction" a few years back, it's comforting to know that folks with superhero knowhow are back in the Marvel U.

There's no word on a release date yet, but who knows? It might beat "Spider-Man 4" out of the gate at this point.
