IO Interactive announces "the very first James Bond origin story," Project 007

By Heidi Nicholas,
Now we know what IO Interactive has been working on: "the very first James Bond origin story" has just been revealed as Project 007.


It's a very short teaser trailer of just under a minute, but that James Bond theme song tells us all we need to know. Over on the Project 007 site, IOI adds that the game features a "wholly original Bond story," with players being asked to "step into the shoes of the world's favourite Secret Agent to earn their 00 status in the very first James Bond origin story."

IOI had been teasing a new project, and since the Hitman series will culminate with Hitman 3 in January next year, it made sense that the team would be ready for something new. As is probably quite fitting for a game about a spy, we don't actually know much about it yet — even the title itself is only a working title at the moment. IOI hasn't said when we will hear more about this intriguing Bond game, but we'll be sure to keep you posted.

What do you think of Project 007? Let us know in the comments!

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
