Project 007: Everything we know so far
IO Interactive, developer and publisher of the legendary Hitman franchise, is working on a new James Bond title codenamed Project 007.
With the last significant James Bond game launching in 2012, it’s fair to say the IP is ready for a refresh and a brand new title to bring it back to life. Luckily for us, IO Interactive, developer of the Hitman games, has picked up the mantle and revealed they’re working on a Bond game codenamed Project 007.
- Is there a Project 007 release date?
- Is there a Project 007 trailer?
- Do we know what is Project 007 about?
- Are there any details on platforms?
Is there a Project 007 release date?
No, as the game is still within its early stages of development, IO Interactive is yet to reveal a confirmed release date for Project 007. The studio is still even actively searching for new employees for the title.
No doubt the game studio will be looking to refresh the bond IP with a polished and impressive gameplay experience for players. To achieve that, the title will need a long-time in development, especially because now it will need to be made for the next-generation of consoles.
It’s obvious the studio has ambitious goals for this project as they’re planning on expanding their workforce of 200 employees to over 400 during the game’s development.
It’s unlikely we’ll see the game release until at least 2022 or perhaps more likely, 2023. Players who are looking to keep up with all the latest development updates can sign up for a newsletter here on the game’s website.
Is there a Project 007 trailer?
While there is no trailer for Project 007 as of yet, there is a teaser trailer that was released in November 2020. It’s fair to say that this didn’t reveal much about the game, with it simply confirming that the studio was indeed developing a Bond game and successfully got fans of the studio extremely excited.
Although the teaser trailer doesn’t provide us with much information, hearing the bond theme is enough to get any fan of the old games hyped for the upcoming title’s release.

Do we know what is Project 007 about?
We don’t have many details about the narrative of Project 007 at this time as IO Interactive has remained silent since the release of the game’s teaser trailer.
IO Interactive has made it very clear they’re invested in the Bond IP for the long haul, in an interview with DR.dk, also Abrak revealed that he “could easily imagine that a trilogy could come out of it.”
Are there any details on platforms?
No, there are currently no details as to which platforms Project 007 could release on. That being said, we’re expecting Project 007 to launch on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. It’s unlikely in two years’ time that game developers will still be releasing titles onto the previous generation of consoles, so the game will likely not be playable on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Of course, it’s always possible the game is released as an exclusive title, but as IO Interactive hasn’t commented on the game’s platforms, it’s difficult to tell for now.
