The Danish game manufacturer IO Interactive, responsible for the Hitman series among other things, is developing a video game for James Bond - 007. The project is being developed in cooperation with MGM, Eon Productions and Delphi. The game should appear for both PC and consoles. Exciting: A brand new story is about to be told about the British agent.
Bond, James Bond - There is hardly anyone who does not know the charming double-zero agent. The new film with the title “No Time to Die” will be released in cinemas on April 21, 2021, and Daniel Craig will embody 007 for the fifth and probably last time. As the developer and publisher IO Interactive has now announced, a video game with the license to kill is in the works.
New Origin story planned for 007
In the 1950s, author Ian Flemming came up with the idea for the character of James Bond, and countless films and books as well as some video games have been released to this day. Nevertheless: Overall, James Bond seemed to be comparatively underrepresented in the games segment, considering the popularity of the character. After all, IO Interactive, the studio behind the Hitman series, is now giving the double-zero agent another chance for a guest appearance on the gaming screen. The video game is created in collaboration with MGM, Delphie and Eon Productions.
Not much is known, but IO Interactive has already confirmed that the new Bond game will revolve around a completely new story. As a working title, the game is currently running under “Project 007”, but it will most likely not stay that way.
Over the past two decades, IO Interactive has developed and published several award-winning titles in the stealth and spy video game genre, and James Bond fits perfectly into the portfolio. The implementation of the game relies on the in-house Glacier engine, which Hitman has already used. The game will be developed for modern systems and platforms, most likely also for the new generation of consoles around Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.
Project 007 is currently under active development in IO Interactive's offices in Copenhagen and Malmö. Industry experts have been recruited for both locations.
"Making a Bond game is a monumental undertaking and I really believe that IO Interactive can work closely with our creative partners at EON and MGM to deliver something very special for our players," said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive. "Our passionate team is excited to unleash their creativity in the iconic James Bond universe and create the most ambitious game in the history of our studio."
Robert Marick, Executive Vice President, Global Consumer Products and Experiences at MGM, recognizes James Bond as having "a strong legacy in the video game space". Marick praises the talent of the developers at IO Interactive and particularly emphasizes their ability to create living worlds and tell immersive stories. Sounds like the story of the new video game from James Bond is clearly conceptually in focus.
