During a YouTube stream this morning, developer IO Interactive revealed a new project that’ll have a lot of James Bond fans very excited. A new title, apparently codenamed Project 007, is on the way from the studio behind the Hitman franchise.
Not many details were released, unfortunately. We know the game will be developed and published by IO Interactive. Project 007 also appears to have the full blessing of MGM. And with that, there’s really not much else to say.
IO Interactive did state on its website the game will be “the very first James Bond origin story,” which to be frank, sounds awesome. Aside from that, we don’t have news on when this game might come out, nor exactly which platforms it’ll come out on (though we are making a calculated bet Xbox will be supported, just as it was for Hitman).
This is the first official Bond game in quite a while, and we’ll be keeping a very close eye on it. Should any other news break, we’ll be sure to fill you in.
