Quantum of Solace for US in early Nov

European retailers stick to late October.

Activision Blizzard has confirmed 4th November as the launch date for its James Bond game, Quantum of Solace, in the US.

There's no word from the publisher on a European date, although retailers Play, Amazon and GAME all tout 31st October as the day of release.

Quantum of Solace is the new James Bond film, in which pouty Daniel Craig will use his swimsuit muscles to dispose of baddies in a gritty and realistic manner.

This will be the first Bond game by Activision since the publisher acquired the licence from EA in 2006. Call of Duty 5 developer Treyarch is behind the adaptation.

We had a look at it recently - head over to our hands-on impressions of James Bond: Quantum of Solace to find out more.
