Hitman developer IO Interactive is a making a James Bond 007 game next, but the game is early in development and remains largely a mystery. Now, IO’s CEO and co-owned Hakan Abrak has shared some new insight into the project and what IO is trying to achieve with it.
He confirmed to IGN that the game won’t use the likeness of any 007 movie actor and it also apparently will feature brand-new characters that IO invented for the game.
“It’s important to mention: doing a licensed game is new to us. We’ve only done our own, original IPs (intellectual property), right? We’ve created these characters… ourselves, from scratch,” he said. “It was very important for us that it wasn’t a movie adaptation. So, it wasn’t a game about… a specific movie, where the story has already been told.”
