IO Interactive, best known for their work on the Hitman franchise, have announced their next game is to be a brand-new James Bond title.
The opportunity for IO to develop a James Bond game seems like a good fit, given the studio’s previous experience in creating solid, stealth-focussed games. This was acknowledged by IO Interactive CEO, Hakan Abrak.
“It’s true that once in a while, the stars do align in our industry,” said Abrak in a press release.
“Creating an original Bond game is a monumental undertaking and I truly believe that IO Interactive, working closely with our creative partners at EON and MGM, can deliver something extremely special for our players and communities. Our passionate team is excited to unleash their creativity into the iconic James Bond universe and craft the most ambitious game in the history of our studio.”
While there’s no release date yet, it was confirmed that Project 007 will be coming to PC and consoles.
