Bruce Feirstein To Write Next Bond Game
24th April 2003

Variety, a very reliable source of Bond news, today named Bruce Feirstein as the writer of Bond`s next gaming adventure:

Bruce Feirstein, who helped pen three James Bond pictures for MGM, is about to send 007 on another mission, with the secret agent once again using gadgets and his Aston Martin to battle baddies. But this time, it won't be for a movie. It'll be for a videogame.

Following the enormous success of the NightFire, one of many movie franchise games in 2002 which propel Electronic Arts profits, the games firm has been hiring big names and plundering top talent from Hollywood.

Details of the successor to "NightFire" are sketchy, but the official "Die Another Day" Region 1 DVD site mentions an "exclusive look at new Bond game" as part of the DVD-ROM special features. Several US gaming magazines have rumoured the next Bond gaming adventure will take the form of a third-person perspective romp in the same style as the popular Tomb Raider series.
