Treyarch is already thinking about a follow up to upcoming Bond title Quantum of Solace, the developer has revealed.

Speaking to in an interview to be published later this week, Treyarch’s Adam Gascoine, the co-design director on Quantum of Solace, said that the team wants to do another Bond game because it “has a lot more to say” and wants the jump to be similar to the one gamers saw with Halo to Halo 2, and Call of Duty to Call of Duty 2.

He said: “I do know that our team wants to work on the next Bond. Because we feel we have a lot more to say. The first game in a franchise is never the greatest game ever made. We’ve got a really good game and we’re really proud of it but we want to build. We want to go like Call of Duty 1 to Call of Duty 2, Halo 1 to Halo 2. We want to make sure that gamers can play this and say all right this is the start of a dynasty. This is going to get better and better and better.

“There’s stuff we really want to improve on. We also want to get driving in the game. We had it in the game for like a year, but we took it out because we didn’t want to do a license game where it’s just got everything and is an average level all the way through. So we took all of those resources and put them into combat. But if we do the game again, another version, we want to put some of that stuff back in.”

Gascoine revealed that if Activision plans on releasing a Bond game every year, as analysts have suggested, it will probably have two developers share development duties in the same way it has Treyarch and Infinity Ward make a Call of Duty game every two years.
