IO Interactive, the developer behind the acclaimed Hitman franchise, has announced that it is delving into the world of super spies with Project 007: a new James Bond title that will tell the origin of the legendary British secret agent.

Details about the game are scarce, but judging by IO Interactive’s previous works, it’s sure to include plenty of stealth and espionage action. A teaser trailer also suggests that Project 007 will be a faithful undertaking that includes all of the franchise’s usual staples.

“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.”

Project 007 is currently in development for “modern systems and platforms,” which probably means PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It’ll be interesting to see which actor IO Interactive models its James Bond after.
