Activision revives Pitfall (again), this time on mobile


Activision's Pitfall franchise will turn 30 this year, so it comes as no surprise that the company is revisiting its roots with an updated version of the game being in development. In this case, Pitfall is being brought to mobile by Activision's UK mobile studio.

The game that was first given life on the Atari 2600 in 1982 will be updated for the modern gamer, says Activision's Martyn Brown, who spoke with MCV. "We've been working on Pitfall since earlier in the year when we set up and it has been really good to revisit that and bring it to a modern audience."

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until later this year to learn more about the game and how it will play on this new platform, but stay tuned with us as we'll bring you more details as we learn them.
