According to James Bond website MI6, Singularity developer Raven Software is currently working on a stealth-based title based in the Bond universe.
The rumor goes that wrk on the Bond title was halted earlier this year, as the Raven team was asked to reallocated its resources towards Call of Duty downloadable map packs. Just recently, MI6 claims, publisher Activision has asked the studio to begin work on the Bond title again.
The existence of such a title is backed by a demo reel created by Raven animator Hanjin Song. The video, posted at online video site Vimeo, has since been made private; the images in this article are snap shots from the now locked clip, courtesy of GamesRadar.
In other non-Bond news, MI6 also is reporting that Raven is or was working on an X-Men title, a follow up to last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine title.
As a fan of Singularity (probably the most fun I've had with a first-person shooter this year, if you must know), I'd be interested in seeing what Raven could do with the Bond franchise. Outside of the recent GoldenEye remake for the Wii, it's been awhile since Bond has seen a truly solid title. Perhaps it's long overdue.
