The developer company of the Hitman franchise has confirmed that a James Bond game, titled Project 007, is on the works.
In a YouTube announcement, IO Interactive has announced that a new 007 title will be released for next-gen consoles and PC soon. “It’s Bond, James Bond, coming to a console and computer screen near you. IO Interactive, in collaboration with MGM, EON Productions and Delphi announced today that they are developing and publishing the very first James Bond origin story with the working title Project 007. Project 007 will feature a wholly original Bond story exclusively as a video game.”
“Over the last two decades, IO Interactive has created, developed and published multiple award-winning titles in the stealth and espionage video game genre, including the acclaimed Hitman franchise. Project 007 will be powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier technology. The game will be made for modern systems and platforms.” the announcement continues.
According to CEO of IO Interactive, Hakan Abrak, “It’s true that once in a while, the stars do align in our industry. Creating an original Bond game is a monumental undertaking and I truly believe that IO Interactive, working closely with our creative partners at EON and MGM, can deliver something extremely special for our players and communities. Our passionate team is excited to unleash their creativity into the iconic James Bond universe and craft the most ambitious game in the history of our studio.”
While Goldeneye 007 is the best James Bond title up to date for me, I really can’t wait to check what IO Interactive can do by taking advantage of the Hitman’s advanced stealth system. Unfortunately for the famous franchise, it is confirmed that Hitman 3 will be the end of the journey for Agent 47.
