A recent job listing at Activision suggests that Treyarch, the studio behind Call of Duty 3 and Ultimate Spider-Man, will be developing the next James Bond videogame.
Back in May, Activision announced it had acquired videogame rights to the James Bond license, a property Electronic Arts had handled for years. The Bond franchise is a hot property -- insiders suggested Activision paid around $70 million for the game rights -- though so far the publisher has said little about what the dashing super-spy will be up to next -- or which studio is at the helm.
According to the job listing, "Treyarch is looking for a Gameplay Designer for our upcoming Bond title." The listing further specifies that the Activision-owned studio is now focusing on next-generation console development, suggesting the new Bond may leap clear of older systems.
I would probably care more if someone else was James Bond besides Daniel Craig. It has been a while since a good James Bond game has been released so I imagine the developers will have there work cut out for them especially with rising game costs.
EA sucks, wat they do with all their nonsports games is just blasphemy to the world of gaming.
No Sean Connery, no deal.
Treyarch are crap developers. They made the awfully crap Minority Report. That's why Call of Duty 3 will be ruined by them and...well...most bond games have been bad anyway.
It's not looking too good.
