It was first reported on CommanderBond.net back in August 2007 that new James Bond video game licence holder Activision had enlisted the talents of the Treyarch, Beenox and Vicarious Visions studios to develop their first 007 game, which is expected to be released late this year (and speculated to be based off of the Bond 22 film).
The Wiire reports today that Beenox studio is currently working on developing the James Bond game for the Nintendo Wii console.
Said Thomas Wilson, Creative Director for developer Beenox: ‘Right now we’re working on a James Bond Wii title in conjunction with Treyarch and we’re rolling with it because we’re really good at what we’re doing and Activision doesn’t want to send their ports anywhere else.’
He continued: ‘One thing we want to make sure of if we’re making the Wii version is that we absolutely want the controls to be top notch. Although we don’t fully control the original development content because it’s in collaboration with Treyarch, that’s one thing that we can do–make sure we put out a strong Wii title.’
Besides the Wii console, Activision’s first 007 game is also planned to be released on the other next-generation consoles, Windows PC and hand-held platforms.
Bizarre Creations are reportedly on work on the second Bond game from Activision, which will possibly be a racing game.
