IO Interactive has teamed up with MGM, EON Productions and Delphi to create a brand new James Bond origin story to gaming.
The project, currently titled Project 007, will feature the very first James Bond origin story which will be available exclusively as a video game.
IO Interactive is widely known for its acclaimed Hitman franchise where stealth is key. Project 007 will also be powered by IO Interactive’s proprietary Glacier technology. While there’s no official platform confirmed, all we know is that the game will be available for modern systems and platforms.
