Project 007 Announced

Interactive announces Project 007 is the project they teased yesterday. As the name suggests, this is centered around Bond, James Bond, the iconic MI6 super-spy of books and movies. They say the game is currently in active development, and while they don't go into too much detail, they say it will be an origin story for the character. The Teaser Trailer is a nothingburger, though it does feature the classic James Bond theme song. Here's what they are revealing for now:
It’s Bond, James Bond, coming to a console and computer screen near you. IO Interactive, in collaboration with MGM, EON Productions and Delphi announced today that they are developing and publishing the very first James Bond origin story with the working title Project 007. Project 007 will feature a wholly original Bond story exclusively as a video game.

Over the last two decades, IO Interactive has created, developed and published multiple award-winning titles in the stealth and espionage video game genre, including the acclaimed Hitman franchise. Project 007 will be powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier technology. The game will be made for modern systems and platforms.

Project 007 is currently in active development at IO Interactive’s offices in Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden. Both locations are recruiting elite talent from around the world to join the team that will build out this exciting and unique gaming title.

“It’s true that once in a while, the stars do align in our industry,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive, “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.”

Robert Marick, MGM’s Executive Vice President Global Consumer Products and Experiences, said, “James Bond has a strong legacy in the video game space, with some of the most iconic games of all-time based on the character. Working with our partners at EON and the talented team at IO Interactive, we plan to bring a new take on this legendary franchise to gamers and Bond fans around the world. IO Interactive are masters of crafting living, breathing worlds of immersive storytelling.”

Based on British novelist Ian Fleming’s popular 1950s book series of the same name, James Bond is one of Hollywood’s longest running and most successful film franchises with a catalogue of 24 films released. The 25th installment in the series, No Time To Die, will be released in theaters globally on April 2, 2021. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, No Time To Die stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final performance as the legendary British Secret Service Agent 007.

I read Forever And A Day last year which is an origin story by Anthony Horowitz using some original unpublished material from Ian Fleming. It was good (if you like Fleming's Bond as opposed to the 'movie' Bond) but I have trouble seeing it made into a compelling action video game.
Wonder where they got the origin story from.

Please dont have "E" prompting the entire game, in the middle of the screen, if you have a beautiful environment this time IO. Ruined Hitman's vistas too much (imo). Though its the norm these days with "campaign by follow hud indicator" and "play by prompting", I hope for less button prompt clutter (once) past tutorial stages in every big game...

If I can’t play Bond as a wheelchair-bound non-binary, it won’t be worthwhile. Give us full Woke-Bond or nothing at all.

That trailer was useless.

Looking forward to the woke character they decide on.

The closest we have to a 007 origin story in the movie series is Casino Royale.

Makes sense that they would carry on the 007 legacy in gaming but I imagine it will be 3rd person. Not saying that is a bad thing. I guess I have too many memories of 007 Goldeneye from my N64 years. That game took up too much of my life, lol.
