Bond is Again, because the makers of Hitman tease their new shock undertaking – an origin story created purely for video video games.
IO Interactive mentioned they have been saying a brand new recreation immediately, however we don’t suppose anybody anticipated it’s the primary new James Bond recreation in eight years.
The sport has the working title of Mission 007 and judging by the teaser trailer, and the very fact IO are nonetheless recruiting employees to work on it, growth has possible solely simply began, but it surely’s described as a ‘wholly authentic Bond story’ – so most likely not that includes whoever takes over from Daniel Craig.
The temporary description on the official website says that, ‘gamers will step into the sneakers of the world’s favorite Secret Agent to earn their 00 standing within the very first James Bond origin story’. (Apparently On line casino Royale doesn’t depend.)
IO Interactive will publish the sport themselves, which is a serious endeavor for them and it’s shocking that the licence holders would hand over the rights to such a comparatively small developer, with little publishing expertise.
Meaning IO’s pitch for the sport should’ve been fairly spectacular, however then given what number of nods and homages there have been within the Hitman video games it does appear very very like it might be their type of factor.

The one indication of what codecs it’ll be launched on is that it’ll launch on ‘trendy techniques and platforms’. Mixed with the truth that work solely simply appears to have begun that most likely means it’ll be Xbox Sequence X/S and PlayStation (and PC) solely.
‘It’s true that every now and then, the celebrities do align in our business,’ says IO’s Hakan Abrak. ‘Creating an authentic Bond recreation is a monumental endeavor and I actually imagine that IO Interactive, working carefully with our inventive companions at EON and MGM, can ship one thing extraordinarily particular for our gamers and communities.
‘Our passionate workforce is happy to unleash their creativity into the long-lasting James Bond universe and craft essentially the most formidable recreation within the historical past of our studio.’
Though now that we all know who has the online game licence, after Activision gave it up in 2012, followers will instantly be questioning whether or not some type of deal will be executed between Nintendo, Microsoft, and IO to allow a GoldenEye 007 remake or remaster.
As a result of that might be nearly nearly as good as a brand new recreation…
