Eurocom, the developer behind the most recent 007 Legends, and the GoldenEye reboot before that, has had to reduce its staff from 200 to "just under 50 employees" Gamesindustry.biz reports.

"Eurocom [is] undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of our workforce redundant," reads a statement from studio director, Hugh Binns.

"This includes many very experienced, talented and highly skilled employees, and we'd like to thank them all for your hard work and efforts.

"We've fought to try and save as many jobs as possible, but the steep decline in demand for console games, culminating in a number of console projects falling through in the last week, left us with no option. Eurocom has retained a core staff of just under 50 employees and will be focusing mainly on mobile opportunities moving forward."

007 Legends was poorly received by critics the world over, and garnered a 4.2/10 on AusGamers.

This year is a big one for the spy who seems to get all the babes, as James Bond celebrates his fiftieth year of sipping shaken Vodka Martinis and saving the world from the guys with metal teeth. 007 Legends seeks to give players just that, the explosive nature of James Bond and his futuristic gadgets, however how does it far?

Our James Bond fan Dave Kozicki takes on the challenge of 007 Legend which stars a Daniel Craig look-alike as the agent who knows everything.
07 Legends absolutely reeks of a rush job. It may have the look (loosely) but carries with it none of the heart, soul or charm of the world’s greatest secret agent. The tenuous links to each film are almost in name only and I’m pretty sure Ian Fleming would be turning in his grave to see his pride and joy bastardised in such a fashion.

Activision has today announced that their upcoming Bond game, 007 Legends, will be featuring a large variety of past and present Bond talent to help authenticate the game even more.
007 Legends will feature Daniel Craig's (SKYFALL, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Casino Royale) James Bond while Rory Kinnear (SKYFALL, Wild Target, Quantum of Solace) voices MI6's Chief of Staff, Bill Tanner.

The Moonraker mission features familiar Bond actors, including Michael Lonsdale (Of Gods and Men, Munich, Moonraker) reprising his villainous role as Hugo Drax and Richard Kiel (Happy Gilmore, Moonraker, The Spy Who Loved Me) as Drax's notorious henchman — Jaws.

Naomie Harris (SKYFALL, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, 28 Days Later), from this fall's feature film SKYFALL, will also make a video game appearance in 007 Legends.
In addition to the very large pool of talent for the game, veteran Bond film and video game writer, Bruce Feirstein (The World Is Not Enough, Tomorrow Never Dies, GoldenEye) will be in charge of creating the overarching storyline for 007 Legends.

007 Legends will be available October 16th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
