This won't be n-Space's first go-around with the franchise. The studio is well acquainted with adapting the series to the handheld, having previously produced the well-received portable version of Black Ops, as well as DS editions for Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare: Mobilized, and World at War. Activision also turned to the studio for the DS versions of James Bond games Blood Stone 007 and GoldenEye 007.
Although n-Space has focused on licensed tie-ins and ports in recent years, the company has a number of notable original titles to its credit. In 2005, the studio launched the GameCube supernatural action game Geist and had previously produced original PlayStation-era games like Danger Girl, Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas, and Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes.
The developer hit a cash crunch last year and laid off much of its team after a licensor pulled out of a deal. However, n-Space has appeared to weather the storm, with Modern Warfare 3, Jaws: Ultimate Predator for the 3DS, and Jillian Michaels Fitness Adventure for the Xbox 360 all set for this year.
