Vivendi hands over Bourne rights

IP goes back to the original holder

Ludlum Entertainment has confirmed that the rights to make games based on the works of Bourne scribe Robert Ludlum has reverted back to them from Vivendi.

Sierra Entertainment launched The Bourne Conspiracy for PS3 and Xbox 360 in June.

Yesterday the future of developer High Moon Studios was called into question after the details surrounding the Activision Blizzard merger were revealed.

"Robert Ludlum's works are an ideal vehicle for realizing the promise of multi-platform gaming," said Jeffrey Weiner, CEO of Ludlum Entertainment.

"We look forward to working with innovative partners in the gaming community and new investors to further extend the reach and appeal of Robert Ludlum's stories and to help write the next chapter for this powerful and timeless entertainment franchise."
