The new James Bond game being developed by Hitman studio IO Interactive could be the first title in a trilogy of releases.
That’s according to IO Interactive studio director Hakan Abrak. In an interview with Danish website DR.dk, Abrak said that the company believes it could expand Project 007 into three titles in total.
Most recently, IO Interactive released Hitman 3 to critical acclaim, concluding the story that has spanned the entire trilogy since it began in 2016.
In the interview, Abrak said that he “could easily imagine that a trilogy could come out of it” when asked about the future of the James Bond series under the direction of IO Interactive.
The developer also revealed that Project 007 will be a completely original story with none of the actors who have portrayed the famous spy reprising their roles. Abrak also spoke about the fact that the studio spent two years preparing for a meeting with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson to try and secure the rights to the series.
