Activision confirmed in its Q1 2011 financial call that it would deliver a new James Bond title later this year.
Referring to a number of licensed IPs it has in its release slate for 2011, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg name-dropped a new 007 game, but didn’t go into specifics.
“For the balance of the year, we plan to launch games based on the best-selling X-Men and Spider-Man franchises, James Bond and the toy phenomenon Bakugan as well as the latest release in the long-standing Cabela’s Hunting franchise, which we’re expanding this year to include new peripherals and an incredible Kinect experience,” he said.
Raven Software is likely to be behind this one.
Activision released two Bond titles last year on the same day in the UK: a reboot of FPS Goldeneye 007 for Wii from Eurocom and third-person actioner Blood Stone from Bizarre Creations for PS3, 360 and PC, the latter of which would turn out to be the last title Bizarre would ever create.
