It was reported a few months ago that Activision acquired the rights to make the next series of James Bond games. Since then there has been no word on when a game would be surfacing. Most had assumed it would show up in Spring 2007 following the release of Casino Royale this November. It appears now that Activision’s acquisition will not go into effect until September 2007 which would mean the game could easily slip to 2008 when the next (Casino Royale sequel) Bond movie debuts on May 2, 2008.

I for one am a little disappointed. I really enjoyed playing the Bond games even though the last couple of games have been a little lackluster. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
