James Bond 007: Risico (Raven Software) [Cancelled – Xbox 360 / PS3]

James Bond 007: Risico (Raven Software) [Cancelled – Xbox 360 / PS3]

As we can read on Wikipedia, James Bond 007: Risico is a cancelled game that was in development by Raven Software studios. This early replacement of Blood Stone was never officially announced, but some screenshots and videos were leaked on the internet. Risico was based on Ian Fleming’s short story “Risico” with the plotline expanded and involved with other unseen elements from James Bond novels written by Ian Fleming himself.

It’s possible that this Raven Software’s new James Bond title was cancelled because of MGM’s financial troubles, while G4 reports that the team has been told to put its  Bond project on hold and instead develop map packs for Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops. Also, James Bond 007: Risico might have been intended for a release during Christmas 2010, if Bloodstone had been released (as originally planned) in 2009. Two Bond games in the same timeframe – that was even enough for Activision.

    Blood Stone was a great game however it seems many people thought it was awful. Idiots. This unreleased game also look as if it could have been something special.

    Actually when Activision released Bloodstone, they released their version of GoldenEye on the Wii & DS at the same time! For some reason the DS not only had a poor version of GoldenEye but it also had a pretty decent version of Bloodstone at the same time too and both were developed by n-Space who also at the same time had the DS version of Black Ops 2 out as well.

    I liked bloodstone. I was expecting another level it two but it was enjoyable. That video of the cancelled game looks sweet. Oh well

    I am a huge James Bond movie/game fan. Honestly from the footage, that could have been one of the best 3rd person shooters/bond game on the market. I definitely would have bought it.
