Universal has announced that they will be bringing the Bourne Trilogy to the Blu-ray format in January.  The Bourne Trilogy has previously been released on the defunct HD DVD format.  The trilogy will contain the same bonus materials that were present on the HD DVD release with the addition of BD-Live functionality.

At this point, there does not appear to be a separate release for each title.  The three films will be released as a boxset.  Retail price is set for $119.98.  Pre-order for the set will be available starting December 16, 2008.

The exhilarating three-disc set is loaded with hours of bonus materials including deleted scenes, interviews, behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentaries and all-new interactive content exclusive to Blu-ray(TM) Hi-Def. Universal's Exclusive U-Control takes viewers beyond the movie with Picture-in-Picture and a series of interactive dossiers, loaded with classified information about Jason Bourne's mysterious past and the people who pursue him. Through Universal's BD-Live Center fans can download even more bonus content, share their favorite scenes with buddies, and engage in a Blu-ray(TM) exclusive strategy game that pits users against each other in hand-to-hand combat simulation.

"The Bourne Identity," directed by Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), launched one of the highest domestic grossing action adventure movie franchises in history. The film's extraordinary cast included Oscar(R) winners Matt Damon and Chris Cooper, Oscar(R) nominee Clive Owen, Brian Cox, Julia Stiles and Franka Potente. Oscar-nominated director Paul Greengrass upped the ante with "The Bourne Supremacy" and continued the unstoppable momentum with "The Bourne Ultimatum," adding Oscar(R) nominees Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Albert Finney to the powerhouse acting ensemble. Preorder close is December 16, 2008. The three-disc Blu-ray Hi-Def collection is priced at $119.98 S.R.P.
