Following the Activision Blizzard merger and the release of The Bourne Conspiracy, late-author Robert Ludlum's Ludlum Entertainment has announced it has re-acquired the rights to create multi-platform games from previous rights-holder Vivendi Universal.

Vivendi first acquired the rights in August of 2005, announcing the first game from the deal, Sierra and High Moon's The Bourne Conspiracy, in June of 2007. With the game now out, and the merger complete, Ludlum Entertainment says it is an "ideal time for the company" to develop new partnerships, ones it hopes will "fully [exploit] the multi-platform potential of the Ludlum content and storylines."

Said Ludlum Entertainment CEO and estate executor Jeffrey Weiner, "Robert Ludlum's works are an ideal vehicle for realizing the promise of multi-platform gaming and capitalizing on the accelerated migration from personal computers and game consoles to a wide variety of mobile devices, online multiplayer games and social media applications."

"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" he concluded, "and to help write the next chapter for this powerful and timeless entertainment franchise."
