Project 007 Story Details Revealed


NeoGAFs Kent Brockman

IO Interactive has been hard at work on Project 007 for a number of years, but we know next to nothing about it. Thankfully, a little bit of light was shed in a recent interview with Eurogamer. IO Interactive co-owner Christian Elverdam revealed that the game is an origin story for James Bond, but also seemingly an original version of the character. The developer noted that they wanted to build a Bond that wasn't just mimicking the films, but designed as a gaming hero.

"[...] For us it's been about finding a mutual understanding of 'what is James Bond about?" said Elverdam. "And as we've talked about, we're doing an origin [story], because one thing, to show the trust they've instilled in us, is that we're allowed to build a James Bond for the games [audience], which I think is a profound homage to where our industry is and where the medium is, in the sense that yes, it's time to have a James Bond character who was not a movie character but who's comfortably just his own game character."
I know they're not based on the movies, but that would be so fucking sick, to actually have the player work and earning the "00" codename in MI6, kinda like in the opening credits to Casino Royale.

"00 status confirmed". I would scream on to my TV if this happens in-game and I was able to do it.
