D3Publisher has announced an agreement with DreamWorks Animation which will see the firm taking over development of studio’s next three films: Madagascar 3, The Croods, and Rise of the Guardians. Previously, THQ was on board to develop, but announced last week it was leaving the kids’ licensed business. The first title to be released, Madagascar 3: The Video Game, will hit shelves alongside the movie’s release in theaters. Rise of the Guardians is to be released during the holidays and The Croods during spring 2013. Thanks, Gamasutra.
