IO Interactive, the developer behind the Hitman series, announced a brand new James Bond title this week called Project 007. Project 007 is a working title, and will feature a completely original Bond tale as the secret agent attempts to earn their 00 status.
Bond is back. After a prolific absence from the world of video games thanks to Activision having no idea what to do with the franchise, the super spy is finally returning to the video game world and IO Interactive, the developer of the Hitman series, is bringing him there.
Casino Royale was an original story for James Bond, of course, while a series of novels have also explored the character's youth, so how this will single itself out as the "first" is unclear.More news: Apple reveals MagsSafe Duo Charger is limited to 11 or 14 Watts
"James Bond has a strong legacy in the video game space, with some of the most iconic games of all-time based on the character". Although it's unclear what the game will entail at this point, IO does have a history with stealth and espionage games, so Project 007 seems to be right up the studio's alley. Do you think that this is a great fit for the Hitman team?
Beyond this date and time, we have no idea what this project is and won't know anything else likely until it is revealed.More news: Brazil and Argentina win as Uruguay's Cavani sent off
