Publisher Activision has doled out a few morsels of information on its plans for the James Bond property. Referred to as "the company's newest blockbuster franchise," entries in the series are planned for unspecified "next-generation" and handheld platforms along with PC. The titles are being handled by developers Treyarch, Beenox and Vicarious Visions.

Earlier this year, Treyarch handled the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of Spider-Man 3, while Vicarious Visions tackled the Wii and DS iterations along with the two DS versions of Transformers. Beenox is responsible for the PC releases of licensed Activision titles, including Spider-Man 3 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.
