Activision’s just announced Spiderman: Edge of Time for a fall release.

Beenox, who made last year’s Shattered Dimensions, are doing dev duties. No platforms are mentioned in the press release, but PC, 360, PS3, Wii and DS versions were all released for SM. Don’t be too shocked to see them.

The storyline sees the Amazing Spiderman and Spiderman 2099 coming together as you try to “correct a timestream gone awry and prevent a catastrophic future brought on by the early and untimely death of Peter Parker.”

Spiderman 2099 writer and co-creator Peter David is penning the story.

“The first Spider-Man entry by Beenox, Spider-Man™: Shattered Dimensions, was touted as one of the wall-crawler’s best Spider-Man games to date from both critics and fans,” said global brand management director, Vicharin Vadakan.

“Beenox is once again taking a fresh and different approach to bring a fast-paced and high-octane adventure and unexpected story to life in Spider-Man: Edge of Time.”

Beenox studio boss Dee Brown added: “At Beenox, we are constantly listening to the fans and looking for new and creative ways to innovate the gameplay experience for them.

“We want to create a totally distinct experience in Spider-Man: Edge of Time by working with Peter David on the story and creating this urgent, high-stakes experience where time is working against you and the fate of Spider-Man hangs in the balance.”

The game will make its first appearance at Wondercon 2011 in San Francisco this weekend
