According to reports, new details on Project 007 have been leaked this week, as a job advertisement indicates that a third-person title awaits you.
Project 007 might be a third-person action game
For the time being, not too much is known about IO Interactive’s James Bond game Project 007. However, a current job advertisement could shed a little more light on the title. It suggests a third-person action game.
The job advertisement is looking for an AI programmer for the upcoming game. And one of the points states that “experience working with 3rd person action games” is required.
The job advertisement also contains a few details that were communicated in advance. So you can expect a very own Bond story that is not based on pre-existing material. A kind of original story is promised, which deals with how the protagonist got his “00” status.
Project 007 was mentioned for the first time at the end of 2020 after IO Interactive published a short teaser on social media. This was followed by messages that had something to do with production in the background. For example, last April the company announced that a new studio was opening in Barcelona.
The last big Bond game was 007 Legends from 2012, which was quite a disappointment. The title developed by Eurocom Entertainment Software only achieved a Metascore of 41 in the case of the PS3 version. Most of the players weren’t too enthusiastic either.
It will be a while before Project 007 is published. The game was announced last November and, according to the manufacturer, it is still in an early development phase. It was also mentioned that the James Bond game could be the start of a trilogy.
