In a less than complimentary comment towards the now defunct Sierra, Keith Boesky, an independent agent who represents the Robert Ludlum estate, has claimed a new deal with EA means the author’s IP is now being handled by “grown ups.”
“EA came in the strongest, had the best take on the property, and they know how to grow the IP and have unquestioned worldwide market reach,” he told Variety.
“We’re dealing with grown ups now.”
Sierra published the first Bourne game, developed by High Moon, last year.
EA announced it signed a ten-year pact with the Ludlum estate yesterday.
Starbreeze is developing the first game based on the deal.

Great news for Bourne fans today: Starbreeze is working on a new game and EA’s taken the license for all games based on Robert Ludlum properties.
“Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne is the most exciting action hero to emerge in decades, thrilling audiences around the world,” said EA Games boss Mike Quigley.
“EA is excited to enter into a long-term relationship with Ludlum Entertainment, bringing the action, intrigue and intensity of Robert Ludlum’s fiction to life for casual and core gamers around the globe.”
The last Bourne game produced was a Sierra effort, coded by High Moon.
