Since Activision was granted the rights to the James Bond 007 video games, news has been relatively silent in the Bond game world. According to a new report from GameSpot, it will remain fairly quiet for quite some time.
The next James Bond game, and the first from Activision, is not planned to be released until May of 2008 – to tie in with the release of Bond 22 (which will be released on the 2nd of that month). ‘MGM has announced the release date for the next Bond movie following this holiday for May of 2008… That is where we would focus to have our first [Bond] game,’ said Bobby Kotick, chairman and CEO of Activision.
CBn previously reported that this first game from Activision was expected to be a Bond 22 tie-in (as well as the cancellation of EA’s Casino Royale), and this appears to be the case so far.
