The new game based on the adventures of the spy James Bond, tentatively named ‘Project 007’, will have an original story – without any connection to the book and film franchise or resemblance to any actor who played the character. The information was given by the developer’s CEO IO Interactive, Hakan Abrak, in an interview with the program IGN Unfiltered.
“There is always excitement about a new Bond. It’s amazing what has been done with the franchise over the years. Each Bond kind of defines a generation and it’s amazing how they have continued to reinvent themselves over so many years. So, we’re not just inspired by a movie, or games and whatnot. We are inspired by everything, and just sucking things into us to make an original Bond, an original story (…) I am really looking forward to creating a new community that players can call their own, ”said Hakan.
The CEO also explains that making a licensed product “is new” for the company. Former arm of Square Enix, IO Interactive has been independent for three years and has never produced games based on works from films, series or books. Their most successful title is ‘Hitman’, a popular hit franchise with franchise games.
“It is very important that we can create a digital Bond, a Bond only for the gaming industry, so it is a completely original story. It seemed very, very important to us, so we passed the idea on to [produtora que é dona dos direitos de James Bond] EON and they agreed that the result would probably be better by doing so, ”he said.
According to information from the developer, the new game will be made in collaboration with the producers responsible for James Bond films in theaters, such as MGM, EON Productions and Delphi, and will tell the origins of the famous spy. There is no information about the actor cast to capture the character’s motion.
‘Project 007’ is being developed on Glacier technology from IO Interactive and it should arrive for PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series X and PC. There is still no release forecast.
‘Project 007’ will be the first of three games
Hakan also said that the game is the beginning of a possible trilogy. “We were allowed to make our own digital Bond, which will not depend on any actor who has played the character. We are making an original story and you can easily imagine that we will have a trilogy ”, he said in an interview with the Danish website DR.
According to him, ‘Project 007’ became a reality after an intense meeting with EON Productions, which assigned the character’s rights to gam, and approval by MGM, which is responsible for the spy movie franchise. The game was announced with a teaser in November last year (watch above).
