Activision re-confirm Bond game for 2010, websites act surprised

05-Aug-2009 • Gaming

On their quarterly conference call for shareholders, Activision re-confirmed that their next James Bond licenced videogame would be out in 2010.

The company's CEO, Mike Griffith said that the company will publish new games in the James Bond, Tony Hawk and Spider-Man franchises in 2010.

Griffith first announced this news back in November last year, saying the second 007 title had move "out of 2009 and into early 2010, due to the impending release of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2″ later this year. The company believes sales of “Quantum of Solace” were impacted by releasing “Call of Duty: World at War” around the same time in 2008 and hopes to avoid the same issue with their next “James Bond” product."

Some industry watchers were not convinced by this reasoning as "Quantum of Solace: The Game" did not impress critics and suffered sluggish sales due a lack of buzz around the title.

The confirmation today of a 2010 release was met with some surprise by gaming and fan sites who seem to have forgotten the previous delay announcement.

Back in November, Griffith said "the movement will have an added benefit in staggering the completions of our racing title and the next Bond, both in development at Bizarre Creations. This will allow the studio to give each title the time and attention it deserves for finish and polish."
