IO Interactive has posted multiple job openings as they look to get a new James Bond title off the ground. The studio, founded in 1998, is responsible for the Hitman series and they’re currently looking to launch Hitman 3, the latest installment of the reboot trilogy for which a few minutes of gameplay footage have been released.
It appears they already have their eyes set on a new project. Back in November, a trailer for what will be IO’s next big game, Project 007, was teased via various platforms. The title will bring a new James Bond story to the fore and they’re reported to be working closely with MGM and Eon Productions.
The Bond gaming franchise has some great titles out there – Everything Or Nothing and GoldenEye 007 thought to be a pair of the very best – yet there hasn’t been much in the way of gaming content for several years.
IOI will be taking charge of the next Bond release and the development has fans pretty excited given their success with the Hitman series. They do seem like the perfect studio to take on such a task.
Since the turn of the year, the company has posted openings as with the aim of getting a team together. They’ve announced openings for an unnamed project, as well as Hitman.
Where Project 007 is concerned, IO is looking to hire a gameplay programmer, rigger, senior game designer, producer, AI programmer, lead game designer, lead sound designer, and gameplay animator, among other positions.
There’s nothing on when we could expect this James Bond title to be ready for launch. For the time being, IO appears to be focused on putting a team together to start the ball rolling in the right direction.
It’s hoped they provide another update when work on the game really gets underway.
