After announcing Project 007, the first James Bond game in nine years, Hitman developers IO Interactive have said in an interview that they could easily “envision a full trilogy” of Bond games.

IO Interactive shocked the world back in November when they announced that a brand new James Bond game was finally being made. It’s incredible to think that the last main game was released back in 2012 in the form of 007 Legends.

With the experienced Danish developers handed the reins, it seems that IO are already eyeing up more than just one Bond game.

The teaser trailer debuted on November 19, 2020, and there haven’t been any further details on the game since. Naturally, this will be because the game’s development is in its infancy and IO Interactive is also dealing with the recent release of Hitman 3.

The developers were recently interviewed by a Danish outlet and said that they could easily make three James Bond games to create a “completely original story”.

There has been a notable absence of Bond games in recent years and it apparently took a lot of convincing from IO Interactive that they were the right people for the job as lots of the recent Bond games “weren’t worthy enough”.

The new James Bond game should be in capable hands as IO Interactive has spent 20 years perfecting their premiere stealth franchise – Hitman. Agent 47 shares similar characteristics with James Bond as he’s at the top of his field, he’s stealthy and very recognizable.

As we said, the game is still fairly primitive and there’s not much known about the game outside of its debut trailer. The near-minute-long trailer features lots of the classic James Bond intro traits such as a bullet in a chamber, the iconic blood dribbling down, and the instantly-familiar Bond theme.

The project is an exciting one for both developers and fans. As IO begins to roll out information about the new game, we’ll be sure to let you know the new details.
