    By Matt Weston on 2007-08-22

    K1Bond007 tips us off that Activision announced a couple of extra details regarding their upcoming debut James Bond video game at the 2007 German Games Convention.

    It’s been rather quiet since Activision was granted the 007 rights in May 2006; the only real piece of news to have emerged is that the game is expected to be based on Bond 22.

    Now, it has been revealed that studios Treyarch, Beenox and Vicarious Visions are developing the game, which will appear on next-generation consoles, Windows PC and hand-held platforms.

    The news that the game will appear on PC should be particularly welcomed by 007 gamers; the most recent game to appear on PC was 2003’s Nightfire.

    K1Bond007 speculates that each developer will handle a different platform, offering the “likely scenario” that Treyarch will develop the game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Beenox will handle the PC version and Vicarious Visions will develop the Wii, DS and/or PSP port.

    Electronic Arts passed the James Bond rights to Activision following the release of 2005’s From Russia With Love.
