It’s only been a month since the launch of both GoldenEye 007 and Blood Stone, but information on the next James Bond video game is leaking out onto the net. Back in May we reported that Raven Software was working on a “stealth-centric” James Bond game, and that it was put on hold so they could focus on a number of maps for the recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops.
A demo reel used to show off an animator’s work has leaked out showing various animation and scenes from games developed by Raven Software (e.g., Singularity). The Bond game in the video is in the same style as Blood Stone. Some of the footage shows an un-textured James Bond hiding behind cover and popping out to put down a few enemies. Other parts of the video show a fully textured Daniel Craig in actual sequences. At one point Craig’s Bond is seen slamming a baddie into a toilet and later in a chase sequence that has him sliding under a truck, riding a zip-line while crashing through a billboard and chasing a man across a rooftop reminiscent of the film Quantum of Solace.
It’s unknown when this game may hit store shelves. Recently Deadline mentioned that the next game was given the go-ahead. It should be noted that while GoldenEye 007‘s sales have been decent (approximately half a million copies sold to date), Blood Stone was practically dead on arrival. To date Blood Stone has sold approximately 200,000 copies across 4 platforms.
