IO hopes to do a whole Bond trilogy
IO Interactive – who just concluded the World of Assassination trilogy with Hitman 3 – is working on a James Bond game, and they seem to be aiming to make another epic trilogy.
The Danish studio certainly has creative freedom: They are making their own James Bond, rather than basing their 007 on any existing portrayal. Studio director Hakan Abrak told Danish media that he ”could easily imagine that a trilogy could come out of it,” when the project was announced in November.
47 to 007 IO has spent the last two decades making increasingly intricate stealth action games about a sharply dressed killer dispatching criminals, corrupt business moguls and overly ambitious politicians, so the studio is certainly uniquely well-equipped to handle Bond.
Her Majesty's Secret Service: The first game follows Bond early in his career while he is earning his 00s. According to Abrak, IO had a hard time convincing the right holders to give them a shot, since they were unimpressed with earlier game adaptations – and especially their tendency to feature “violence for the sake of violence.”. Fingers crossed for jokes drier than Martini!
