IO Interactive, the developer of Hitman games, has announced a new James Bond game called Project 007 (working title).
The upcoming title will tell Bond’s origin story, according to the company’s press release surrounding the reveal.
“Featuring a wholly original Bond story, players will step into the shoes of the world’s favorite Secret Agent to earn their 00 status in the very first James Bond origin story,” reads the press release.
Project @007 (working title) is a brand new James Bond video game with a wholly original story.

The 52-second trailer doesn’t provide a lot of detail but does feature the iconic 007 theme song.
Furthermore, IO Interactive’s website indicates that the company is recruiting “elite talent worldwide” to help work on this new title. Project 007 is currently in development at IO Interactive office in Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden.
Project 007 looks to still be in the early stages of development, so it might be a couple of years before we see the upcoming Bond title.
Speaking of Bond, the next film starring the British secret agent, No Time to Die, releases April 2nd after being delayed twice due to COVID-19.
