Treyarch to craft new Bond
We recently reported on Activision's shock-gazumping of EA to gain control of the James Bond game-rights. The big-money deal will begin to bear fruit soon, it would seem, with Activision revealing that developer Treyarch are at present working on their first 007 title.
Nothing is official yet, but the cat was let out of the proverbial bag via a job ad linked to Treyarch which Activision have verified. The ad seeks a game designer to work on an "upcoming Bond title." Next-generation platforms are also mooted in the ad, though we could probably have guessed that anyway. The latest film, Casino Royale, is due out in the festive season starring Daniel Craig as the eponymous secret agent. It is expected that the game will be based on this.
More titles could of course be crafted by Treyarch if they pull-off Casino Royale, Activision paid some 70-million USD for the rights to Bond until 2014. Treyarch have also created the acclaimed Call of Duty 2: Big Red One and Ultimate Spider-Man, and are currently crafting Call of Duty 3. More soon.
