    Hope that this means that a new video game is on the horizon soon. I have missed playing a Bond themed game for some time now.

    Glad that I still own a majority of the older games for previous home consoles to tied me over until a new game comes out.

    It would be really nice if Scientific Game were to release a video game in the near future. It would certainly help many fans including myself to pass the time in self quarantine faster.
