You know, up until a few years ago, James Bond games were big business. In fact, they were so hot that publishers actually created 007 plotlines (Everything Or Nothing
) when movies weren't coming quickly enough. Sadly, since 2005's From Russia With Love
, the series has sat stagnant, with the best Bond film
in recent memory not even getting the video game treatment.
Now though, it appears Ian Fleming's secret agent is staging a comeback, not only with a Treyarch-developed action game
but with a previously-rumored second Bond project
, which EGM
may have gotten the scoop on. The mag is reporting the rumor that recently-acquired
Bizarre Creations is the dev behind the second project, a driving-heavy 007 outing. (If the idea sounds familiar, it should: EA took at stab at it in 2000 with the PSone's 007 Racing.)
We're not sure what we're more excited about: The fact that Bizarre could be working on a Bond game, or the welcome news that there's not going to be another
street racing franchise cluttering up shelves.
