    EA is set to tackle yet another Bond game project, GoldenEye 2 (working title), which is under “Top Secret” Development.

    In GoldenEye 2, players will explore the dark side of the Bond underworld, playing an agent who was a candidate for 00 status before being dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality. Players will join ranks with the legendary super-villain Auric Goldfinger, fighting for control of the world’s greatest criminal organization. The game is under development at EA Los Angeles for multiple console platforms, scheduled for release this holiday season under the EA GAMES brand. More details will be forthcoming at a later date.

    “As the #1 console title in the US, Everything or Nothing, EA’s critically acclaimed new Bond game has it all, including original music from Grammy winner Mya and top Hollywood talent such as Pierce Brosnan and Heidi Klum, And we’re not done yet — today we’re announcing that we are developing GoldenEye 2, a game where players become the ultimate villain in the Bond universe.”

    – John Riccitiello, EA’s President and COO

    “Everything or Nothing’s success continues to showcase the enormous strength of our collaborative relationship with EA and Danjaq. We look forward to continued success with this fall’s release of a new chapter in the Bond saga and the creation of another blockbuster franchise in GoldenEye 2.”

    – Travis Rutherford, Senior Vice President of MGM Consumer Products and Interactive.
