Activision and High Moon Studios, the guys behind the magnificent Transformers titles, are planning to develop a new game based off a Marvel Comics property. The plan is to officially announce the title during San Diego Comic-Con at the Marvel Video Games panel.

However, a teaser site has popped up online that may have spoiled the surprise early (see above teaser image). It appears as though High Moon Studios will be developing a Hit Monkey title.

Hit Monkey was created in 2010 by writer Daniel Way and artist Dalibor Talajic. The character is a Japanese macaque that learns to be an assassin. Yup, sold.

If High Moon’s previous work on the Transformers titles is any indication, the Hit Monkey IP is in good hands. Hopefully we’ll get that official announcement this coming weekend during the San Diego Comic-Con.
