James Bond 007: Details of the new game from the Hitman developers
Although the project is still in the early stages of development, IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak has already revealed the first details about the upcoming James Bond video game Project 007 to Danish radio. The studio behind the Hitman series, the latest part of which Hitman 3 brought the reboot trilogy around Agent 47 to a conclusion for the time being, is working in collaboration with rights holder MGM on a playable implementation of the Bond franchise.

The film series Handing the world's most famous spy into the hands of the studio, which is responsible for the most iconic series of agents in the field of computer games, seems to be an absolute sure-fire success, at least on paper. For many fans of both series, the announcement of the game should already have a picture of what is likely to await us with the title. After all, the gameplay of the Hitman series already contains many elements that we can easily imagine in a James Bond adventure. The preference of both series for exotic and memorable locations suggests that there is a high probability that the right people are at work here.

Abrak has now revealed that he and his team have great ambitions in the development of Project 007 and he expects to double the studio to 400 employees over the next few years. He also wants to create a sister studio in Sweden that will be involved in the implementation on a large scale.


Project 007: Teaser reveals new James Bond game from Hitman makers loadVideoPlayer ('83429', '& sAdSetCsategory = article_featured', 0, '16: 9 ', false, 1365750, false, 249732, 260 , false, 0, '', '', false); In terms of content, Project 007 should have absolutely nothing to do with the universe of films. The main character James Bond himself should not be based on the current or a past screen interpretation of the figure. Instead, we control Bond even before he has earned his legendary status as a double-zero agent. Obtaining the promotion will arguably be an integral part of the game and the reward for completing a particularly challenging mission. All the other elements that we know from the Bond films will also be represented. So fans should be able to prepare for car chases and villains with world domination fantasies.

Obtaining the license for Bond was difficult, according to Abrak, because not only MGM, but also the company EON, which is run by the broccoli family. Productions had to give the green light for development. In his opinion, convincing step-siblings Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson of the concept only worked because the pitch was presented in a "classically down-to-earth, Scandinavian" way. Actually averse to video games due to their high level of violence, the producers finally gave IO Interactive their blessing. When exactly we can expect a release of the game is still completely in the stars.

IO Interactives Hitman 3, however, has already been available since January 20, 2021. You can find out whether the game is worthwhile in our test.
