Activision has lost its licence to thrill. The popular games company no longer hold the licencing rights to create new James Bond video games. Electronic Arts sold the rights to Activision in 2006 and the deal would run through until 2014. Rumours started after James Bond video games were promptly taken off the shelves in the New Year and on the internet.
007 LEGENDS which was released by Activision last year received poor reviews and sales, causing the developer Eurocom to go bankrupt. 007: BLOOD STONE also went down the same track when it was released in 2010 after high expectations.
The only truly successful Bond title to come out of Activision was the Goldeneye 007 game for the Wii (and later released as Goldeneye 007 Reloaded for the PS3 and X-Box 360).
Since the James Bond films are co-produced by Sony, it wouldn't be surprising if Sony Computer Entertainment took over the rights.
Here is a look at some of the 007 titles released by Activision over the years...
