has announced Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy
for Xbox 360 (and PS3 ... blah, blah). Developed by High Moon Studios, creators of the vampiric western, Darkwatch
, the game puts players in the shoes of brainwashed government assassin, Jason Bourne. The game promises to let players experience Bourne's evolution from deadly assassin to rogue agent. Given the visual similarities to Splinter Cell Conviction
and the attachment of Robert Ludlum's name to the title, it looks like Sierra is doing everything it can to establish a competing franchise. With Conviction
from the Bourne
films, it will be interesting to see the inevitable comparisons between the two games when The Bourne Conspiracy
ships next summer.
More info will be revealed at E3 next month, and a cover story will appear in the August issue of OXM
. Check out the first batch of screenshots in the gallery below.
