The first Bourne game stipulated in the agreement is already in the works at Starbreeze Studios in Uppsala, Sweden.
“Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne is the most exciting action hero to emerge in decades, thrilling audiences around the world,” said Mike Quigley, group vice president of marketing, EA Games Label. “EA is excited to enter into a long-term relationship with Ludlum Entertainment, bringing the action, intrigue and intensity of Robert Ludlum’s fiction to life for casual and core gamers around the globe.”
The agreement fits EA’s strategy like a glove, especially since Ludlum Entertainment has also signed a production deal with Universal Studios to produce films based on Robert Ludlum books. So, as long as Hollywood keep s making movies, EA will continue to release movie-based or movie-related games.
The quality of such upcoming games is not a discussion issue.Not for us and definitely not for them.
