New James Bond Game Project 007 announced by Hitman creators

Bond is back as Hitman makers make fun of their new surprise project – an origin story created purely for video games.

IO Interactive said it would announce a new game today, but I don’t think anyone expected it to be the new James Bond game for the first time in eight years.

The title of the game is Project 007, and judging by the teaser trailer, the development is just beginning because IO is still looking for staff, but it may be described as “a completely original bond story”. No one will take over from Daniel Craig.

According to a brief description on the official website, “Players step into the shoes of the world’s most popular secret agent and earn 00 status in the first James Bond Origin Story.” (Apparently Casino Royale is not counted.)

IO Interactive publishes the game itself, which is a big job for them, and it’s amazing that licensees transfer their rights to such relatively small developers who have little publishing experience.

So while IO’s pitching to the game must have been pretty impressive, it seems like them, given how many nods and homages the Hitman game had.

The only indicator of the format it will be released is that it will boot on “latest systems and platforms”. Coupled with the fact that work is just getting started, it probably means that it will only be on the Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation (and PC).

“Occasionally, it’s true that our industry is starred,” says IO Hakan Abrac. “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. I am.

“Our passionate team is excited to unleash their creativity into the iconic James Bond world and create the most ambitious game in the history of our studio.”

Knowing who has the video game license, fans soon after Activision abandoned it in 2012, fans of Nintendo, Microsoft, IO to allow remakes or remasters of GoldenEye 007. I wonder if I can make any transactions between them.

Because it’s almost as good as a new game …
