Electronic Arts announced that it has closed a mulit-year deal with MGM that grants EA exclusive worldwide rights to develop, publish, and distribute game titles based on the James Bond character. EA plans a series of Bond games for both console and PC, the first to be based on the current Bond film The World is Not Enough for release in 2000. "`It is with great pleasure that we join forces with EA to build the Bond name into a leading game franchise,'' concluded MGM Interactive president David Bishop, "The Bond license is the longest running and most successful, to date, and we are confident that combining the talent and passion between all parties will result in a line of top-quality interactive entertainment titles that stays true to the Bond world.''
