Project 007 was revealed in late 2020. The game is under development by IO Interactive, the studio behind the Hitman franchise, but not much is known about the project nearly three years after the announcement.
While details about Project 007 remain limited, the studio has hinted at its progress in a recent interview. IO Interactive claims that the development of the game is going well.
Why it matters: James Bond is an iconic character from films and novels. While he has already been featured in gaming adaptations before, Project 007 could prove to be the definitive gaming adaptation of the character.
In a recent interview with GameReactor, the developers teased the upcoming James Bond game. IO Interactive said:
“007 is under development, it’s looking very cool.”
This is great news for fans looking forward to the game. IO Interactive has established a large fanbase after its work on the Hitman games, and the studio’s work on James Bond could lead to a massive surge in popularity.
Speaking about the game’s narrative, IO Interactive said:
“It’s going to tell the story of the first Bond and how he becomes the secret agent.”
Therefore, Project 007 will focus on an origin story, taking fans through the humble beginnings of the character. This should also help introduce new players to the adventures of James Bond.
IO Interactive could also be planning a narrative that runs for multiple games, with the first title being the introduction to the narrative. However, the studio refused to elaborate further.
While an official release date has not been announced for Project 007, fans of the project should stay tuned for more information. The recent annual report of IO Interactive has suggested that they have a long production phase ahead.
Therefore, the game is unlikely to arrive anytime soon. Still, the studio appears to be confident with the game’s current progress.
