It sounds like a great match to us, with IO Interactive, the people behind the Hitman series, working on a new 007 game.

While the movie series has continued to captivate, despite valiant attempts games haven’t quite nailed the Bond experience since the joys of GoldenEye way back on the Nintendo 64.

Set to be “the very first James Bond origin story,” it’s set to be a completely new Bond story, rather than being based on any of creator Ian Fleming’s books.

No date has been divulged – no matter what methods of torture we tried – and the best we can give you on format availability is that it will be coming to “modern systems and platforms”.
