Last year Activision acquired developer Bizarre Creations and pretty much since then the rumor was that they were secretly working on the second Activision-published James Bond game. This turned out to be true according to a recent announcement by Activision at an In-Game Ad Conference. Playing to the strengths of Bizarre Creations, which is best known for a number of great racing games such as Metropolis Street Racer for the Sega Dreamcast and the Project Gotham Racing series on Xbox and Xbox 360, the next Bond game is said to be “racing-oriented”.
No details have been announced other than the racer is not tied to any specific Bond film and that the game is currently planned for a September 2009 release.
The first Activision James Bond game, Quantum of Solace, based upon the films Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, was recently released this past November.
