Fox Interactive was a video game publisher and developer mainly concerned with titles based on 20th Century Fox properties.

History

Fox Interactive was formed in May 1994, headed by former Time Warner Interactive executive Ted Hoff, and was a division of Fox Video, the home media distribution part of 20th Century Fox.[1] The company published games based on 20th Century Fox film and movie properties, as well as some original titles like Croc: Legend of the Gobbos.

Their first two games were The Pagemaster, based on the film of the same name, and The Tick, based on the Fox Kids cartoon series of the same name. Fox Interactive also released 2 arcade games, Die Hard Arcade and The Simpsons Bowling with Sega and Konami respectively.

In May 2001, Vivendi Universal Games took over all publishing duties for Fox Interactive.[2] The company would eventually be sold by Fox to them in 2003.

After the closure of Fox Interactive, video games based on 20th Century Fox properties are licensed out to other third party publishers or on mobile devices, are published by the successor to Fox Interactive, Fox Digital Entertainment.
