If reports from G4
sources are to be believed, Singularity
developer Raven Software is working on a "stealth-centric Bond
game" (not to be confused with the unannounced Bond racer
). Not only that, but
the game has supposedly been put on hold so that Raven can create map packs for this November's Treyarch-developed Call of Duty: Black Ops
. Apparently, in the wake of Activision's kerfuffle
with (now former) Infinity Ward staff, the publisher is having to assign substitute developers to work on various components of the lucrative Call of Duty
While the situation sounds less than ideal for Raven, it beats the pretty heavy layoffs
suffered by the studio last year. Now having too much
work sounds like a good
problem for Raven, especially in a still-ailing economy
. We reached out to Activision to confirm this report, but hadn't heard back as of publishing.
Activision responded, "Activision does not comment on rumor and speculation."
