Universal Pictures has confirmed plans to move forward with The Bourne Betrayal and also to develop Ted 2. The Hollywood Reporter brings word directly from NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke, who also announced that one of the studio's goals is to increase the number of animated features to two a year.

To date, Ted has grossed close to $400 million worldwide with The Bourne Legacy performing at bit more modestly at $182 million. The studio's Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, meanwhile, managed $337 million, somewhat shy of the incredible $543 million reached by Universal's first partnership with Illumination Entertainment, Despicable Me in 2010. Despicable Me 2 is on track for release on July 3, 2013 with a spinoff feature focusing on the "Minions" planned for sometime in 2014.

The Bourne Betrayal was teased earlier this year, just prior to the release of the latest film.

"We're gonna follow Jeremy's character," producer Frank Marshall told ComingSoon.net. "Everything else is wide open. That's the great thing about this now. The table is set to go any direction we want to. But we will, I'm sure, follow Jeremy and see what happens. Jeremy and Rachel [Weisz]."

As for Ted 2, the trade quotes Burke as saying that the studio wants to move on the project, "as soon as we can."

Though not mentioned in the article, recent reports suggest that Universal is also looking for Safe House 2.
