Activision announces new Family Guy game
Posted on May 07, 2012 by OG

A new Family Guy game coming out, this time published by Activision.  The game, Family Guy:  Back to the Multiverse, is going to be based on the season 8 season premiere episode "Road to the Multiverse" where Brian and Stewie travel to different universes leading them to a universe where dogs owned humans as pets.  Very few details were given by Activision today other than saying that the game will come out this Fall and will feature the voice cast and writers from the show. 

This is not the first game to be based on the series created by Seth MacFarlane.  Family Guy Video Game!, published by 2K Games and developed by High Voltage Software, came out in 2006 with fairly average reviews.  A new browser MMO for the game, Family Guy Online, is currently in its beta with plan to launch soon.
