The developers at IO Interactive have confirmed their next project is going to be Project 007 — a game focusing on the origins of James Bond. Naturally, IO Interactive is best known for their work on the Hitman games (another series about a well-dressed man with an iconic weapon). But with the third game in that trilogy due out in two months, their next title is apparently already in development. The new game is also the result of the work they’ve done with Warner Bros, who’ve been responsible for publishing their work lately. IO Interactive talks plans for the game on Project 007’s website:
It’s Bond, James Bond.
Project 007 (working title) is a brand new James Bond video game to be developed and published by IO Interactive.
Featuring a wholly original Bond story, players will step into the shoes of the world’s favorite Secret Agent to earn their 00 status in the very first James Bond origin story.
IO Interactive is currently recruiting elite talent from around the world to join the team that will build out this exciting and unique gaming title.
Project 007 will be developed for current systems and platforms, which means it’s likely up in the air until they have more available to show. The release date could be anywhere from two to three years from now.
