No Bond Game with Casino Royale Debut

With the 21st Bond film, Casino Royale, opening this Holiday season, one would suspect a videogame adaptation to cash in on the movie's hype. Activision, however, is skipping this film to focus on a Bond game for the recently announced 22nd film, tentatively scheduled for release May 2, 2008.

The previous Bond video games (seven by EA between 2000 and 2005) have received decent to lukewarm reviews. Kudos to Activision for not milking the franchise for all that it's worth.

The next Bond, based on whatever movie follows Casino Royale, will be developed by Treyarch. Activision will release games based on Shrek 3, Spider-Man 3, and Transformers during the first quarter of fiscal 2008, which begins April 1, 2007.

It sucks that i will have to wait till 2008 for a bond game, but i at least hope with the extra time they will finally get it right.
