New Bond Title To Focus On "Driving And Racing"
Back in February of 2009, an Activision Blizzard financial report told us that a new James Bond video game would be released in 2010; it was in the works by Blur developers Bizarre Creations.
And now, it appears that retailer information from British store HMV has lifted the lid on James Bond: Bloodstone, which appears to be a racing game of some kind. The retailer calls it a "driving/racing game coming soon" and of course, we all recognize that easily distinguishable 007 logo. Now, this wouldn't be the first time we saw a Bond-based racing title; you may recall 007 Racing back on the original PlayStation. Furthermore, this title makes even more sense because as you may or may not know, the next Bond film - which was supposed to feature the return of Daniel Craig - has been put on indefinite hold. Hence, no movie this year. And of course, the Bond movies are well known for having some super hot cars (as pictured here) and besides, we don't have all the details just yet. Maybe there will be some semblance of Stuntman, in that the player must drive all crazy-like through a movie set, performing stunt after stunt. If that is the case, though, let's hope it's not as infuriating as Stuntman...
Anyway, it's time to be on the lookout for details concerning James Bond: Bloodstone, which is scheduled to come to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii at some point.
