It was previously reported by CBn that Activision was planning on releasing their debut James Bond 007 game in May 2008, to coincide with the release of ‘Bond 22.’
With the announcement that Bond 22 has been moved to a November 2008 release date, EuroGamer points out that this may cause a setback for the first Activision Bond game. Whether or not the game will still be planned for May 2008 or pushed back to match Bond 22 is unclear; Activision UK has declined to comment.
Bobby Kotick, chairman and CEO of Activision, had previously said: ‘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.’
