we probably won’t get a new one killer for a while but IO interaction There was indeed a James Bond match, and more details were shared.
IO Interactive’s Bond game was first released about three years ago, and we haven’t really heard about it since. The studio also recently shared that Hitman was a bit of a hiatus, at least when it comes to new games. But in an interview with Eurogamer, IO Interactive’s chief creative officer and co-owner Christian Elverdam and co-owner Hakan Abrak shared some new details about the upcoming Bond game, mostly about how they’re building the original story and p itching it first. this story.
“First of all, working with Eon’s team has been awesome and really inspiring [Productions]the man behind all of Bond,” Elverdam said, going on to point out how he’s “used to defending Agent 47” in terms of how others might want to adapt the Hitman franchise (the games have gotten more than one title). film adaptations, none of which were widely popular).
“Obviously, for them, that’s their role in the Bond franchise. So for us, it’s about finding a mutual understanding of ‘what James Bond is’…as we said Yes, we are doing an origin [story]for one thing, to show the trust they instilled in us, we were allowed to build a James Bond for the game [audience], I think it’s a deep respect for where our industry is and where the media is in the sense that yes, it’s time to have a James who isn’t a movie character but is comfortably just his own game character Bond role. ”
The game turned out to be quite a l ong time in the making, with Elverdam explaining that the idea of making a potential James Bond game dates back to 2013, when the studio was redesigning Hitman. “I don’t remember the exact date, but at some point it obviously turned into an interesting discussion about ‘what if?’.” Because at that point, obviously, there hadn’t been a Bond game in a long time. . ”
Part of the IP’s appeal is that Bond as a character is constantly reinvented, and part of it is recast on a semi-regular basis. Abrak noted that the team wants to build “something that can go hand-in-hand with TV and film,” not just “leveraging intellectual property.”
Project 007 is still largely under wraps at the moment, with no release date in sight, but at least we have Hitman to keep us occupied.
