High Moon Studios
(which you may remember from Darkwatch
) and Sierra
Entertainment are doing their best Tom Clancy impersonation, bringing Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne character to the 360 and PS3.
But in a refreshing twist, The Bourne Conspiracy
goes the Riddick route, eschewing rushing a game out to match a film release and instead aiming for summer 2008.
Plot description in the press release makes TBC
seem like a prequel of sorts, letting players control the amnesia-prone super agent in his early days. Gameplay details on the game, described as a "third-person espionage action game" are scarce, but more will apparently be revealed at E3 and in the August issue of the Official Xbox Magazine.
