EA gets Robert Ludlum/Jason Bourne game rights


It looks like yet another castoff from the Activision Blizzard merger has found a new home. Electronic Arts announced today that they have secured the game rights to the catalog of novels written by the late spy novelist Robert Ludlum. It's not a shock to hear that the first game from this new agreement will be based on the Jason Bourne novels.

Developer Starbreeze Studios (Chronicles of Riddick) is already working on the first Bourne game but no platforms or a release date were mentioned. Vivendi Games released The Bourne Conspiracy in June 2008 for consoles. It was the final game from the publisher before it merged with Activision to form Activision Blizzard. The newly company already owned the James Bond license via Activision and most likely felt that having another spy game franchise was repetitive.
