EA has secured a deal with Ludlum Entertainment allowing it to create videogames based on the works of acclaimed author Robert Ludlum – the first of which will be a game based around the Bourne character to be developed by Starbreeze Studios.
The announcement seemingly puts to rest speculation surrounding Project Redlime, the previously untitled collaboration between EA and Starbreeze that came to light last February.
Bourne's last videogame outing launched to a muted response, Vivendi and High Moon Studios effort last year receiving mixed reviews. With the developer behind the hugely impressive Chronicles of Rid$#@! games at the helm, expectations will no doubt be high for the latest Bourne project.
Several of Robert Ludlum's works are currently receiving the Hollywood treatment, with The Maltarese Circle due to hit cinemas later this year and Leonardo DiCaprio set to star in an adaptation of The Chancellor Manuscript.
For the time being, however, EA's focus appears to be on the Bourne series, with EA's Mike Quigley saying,"Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne is the most exciting action hero to emerge in decades, thrilling audiences around the world. 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."
