Disney Interactive is apparently planning to release a new Tron
game to tie-in with the upcoming sequel to the 1984 sci-fi movie starring Jeff Bridges.
The sequel to original movie is set to star Garret Hedlund and Olivia Wilde, with Jeff Bridges also making a return. It's idiotically titled 'T2RN
' and is listed for a 2011 release.
The game is to enter development shortly and will see a release alongside the film, according to Variety
, who express concern that Disney Interactive is starting new projects while also laying off staff. The article also mentions Warren Spector's new project with Disney, which is rumoured to be a platformer starring Mickey Mouse - possibly a remake of The Castle of Illusion
The world of Tron
has long lived hand-in-hand with computer games of course, primarily because the game is about people who get sucked into a computer system. Aside from dozens of Light-cycle games, there's also Discs of Tron
and Tron 2.0
- the latter having been developed by Monolith in 2003 to favourable reviews.
Little is known about the new and upcoming game, but it seems reasonable to assume it'll have a light-cycles section and lots of neon lights. It'll probably be a multi-platform title too.

film, or are you as put off by the name as we are? Let us know your thoughts in the forums
