I love The Bourne Identity, and I really enjoyed The Bourne Supremacy. That said, I don’t know how the video games will be based on the films, but I am optimistic that there is a foundation to work with. Either way, Vivendi Universal has signed a long term agreement to produce games based on Robert Ludlam’s best selling works like Bourne and Covert One.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to launch a new line of games inspired by some of the most exciting spy-action franchises ever created,” said Bruce Hack, CEO of VU Games. “The interest in Robert Ludlum’s works is enormous, as evidenced by the worldwide popularity and commercial success of his books and movies. VU Games intends to aggressively establish Ludlum as a top tier games brand with high-quality franchises poised to go head-to-head with other major spy-action games in the industry.”

“Properties like Bourne and Covert One naturally lend themselves to video games, and we are excited to bring Robert Ludlum’s stories to life in a way that has never been done before,” said Jeffrey M. Weiner, CEO of Ludlum Entertainment. “Our long-term partnership with VU Games underscores our belief in the creativity and vision that the development team will bring to these exciting new projects.”

Let’s hope for the best, and maybe we might get Matt Damon doing the voice for an all new Bourne game, like Sean Connery did recently for a James Bond title. More on this as information becomes available.
