Licenses for making James Bond video games have been left in the wilderness for years, apparently mixing fate during different periods of ownership.
Absolutely like James Bond games defining genres like Rare’s classic GoldenEye 007, decent attempts like Eurocom’s Nightfire, and EA’s own attempts at a game named GoldenEye in 2004. There was a typical nonsense.
The IO project is the first big new bond game since Activision’s widespread 007 Legends, and Eurogamer scored a 3/10 review score in 2012.
“Occasionally, it’s true that the stars in our industry match,” said Hakan Abrac, the boss of IO Studios today. “Creating an original bond game is a monumental endeavor, and we sincerely believe that IO Interactive can work closely with EON and MGM’s creative partners to provide something very special to players and the community. Our passionate team is the iconic James Bond world of their creativity, creating the most ambitious game in the history of our studio. “
The developers are also currently working on Hitman 3, which is scheduled for January 2021 as a cross-generation title for PC, Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox. New locations for bald assassin antiheroes include Dubai and Dartmoor. There is support for PSVR, but you will need the PS4 version of the game even if you play on PS5.
