('Warthog' or 'the Group')


Warthog plc, the AIM listed interactive entertainment software group, has been
commissioned by Activision, the computer games publisher, to produce a game

next-generation console hardware and is scheduled for release in 2002. The

The X-Men comics were created in 1963 by Stan Lee, editor of Marvel Comics,
Inc. and are the best-selling comic book series on record.

Headquartered in Santa Monica, California, Activision, Inc. is a leading
worldwide developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment
and leisure products.  Founded in 1979, Activision posted revenues of $572
million for the year ended 31 March, 2000.

Ashley Hall, CEO Warthog plc, said:

'We are delighted at the opportunity to work with Activision again. We intend
to retain the highest game development standards at Warthog and are aiming to
create something unique that will exceed the expectations of Activision,
Marvel and ourselves.' 

Julian Lynn-Evans, Activision's Vice President, European Studios said:

'We pride ourselves on the quality of our titles and strength of our brands. 
Warthog did a great job on the development of Star Trek: Invasion, and it's a
pleasure to work with them on this exciting new project'.
