If you thought after the recent Hitman reboot entries that IO Interactive would be a perfect fit to make a new James Bond game, you weren’t the only one- apparently, the developer agrees with you, as does the license holder. After teasing the same yesterday, IO Interactive have now announced Project 007, a new original James Bond game.
As per the game’s official website, Project 007 will be a brand new origin story that will see players stepping into the shoes of Bond before he became the man with a license to kill, and follow his journey en route to him earning his 00 status.
As the game’s name and the brief nature of its announcement teaser trailer indicate, Project 007 is pretty early in development, with IO Interactive currently on the lookout for talent to add to its development team. “IO Interactive is currently recruiting elite talent from around the world to join the team that will build out this exciting and unique gaming title,” the game’s website reads.
No release window or release platforms for the game have yet been announced, but I wager it’ll be a while before we hear anything concrete about it. Either way, it’s happening- and I’m sure that’ll be reason enough for millions to get excited.
