We’ve known for some time that IO Interactive, the studio behind great games Assassin games, Working on new James Bond Game. And while this team seems like a perfect, fresh match Association The game appears to be long overdue, and according to IOI, the team had to assure people who own the spy franchise that it would not be creating another FPS game in order to convince them to hand over the rights.
Goldeneye 007 The Nintendo 64 is one of the most famous and beloved video games in history. It has popularized FPS games on consoles, More than eight million copies have been soldIt led to dozens of similar James Bond FPS games. I would argue that the games helped grow the franchise’s audience. With all that said, you would think that Eon Productions – the people who own the Bond film series – would be excited about a new game based on their famous spy. But according to the developers behind it, that’s not the case, and you can blame him Golden eye For this.
In the latest version of edge magazine, As I mentioned GamesRadarco-owners of IO Interactive, Hakan Abrak and Christian Elverdam, spoke about the game, which is still in development. 007 game, detailing their vision for the project. But the two also explained that it took a lot of convincing to convince Eon Productions to sign on to the project, as the Bond owners didn’t want another “action-oriented” FPS.
“Our impression was clear [at the time] “They weren’t looking for a game,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO and co-owner of IO Interactive. “And I think it’s fair that they probably weren’t too happy with some of the later games.”
The co-owners of IO Interactive pitched Eon Productions a take on a James Bond game that was underrated Golden eye And more about being a globe-trotting, stealth-oriented spy. Elverdam explained that his presentation to Eon focused on how he presented it 007 The project will be about getting in and out of the site without causing too much collateral damage or engaging in violence unless there is a need to. In other words, an IO Interactive project won’t be Bond running through endless corridors with 20 guns and shooting everyone he comes across, which is how I would describe the vast majority of it. 007 Games produced in the last 20 years. Instead, it looks like it will play more like a game Assassin Games, where violence is often a last resort and stealth play is king.
Elverdam said edge That approach “helped [IO Interactive] Ion convinced that there is complexity in how we deal with the client’s imagination. Apparently this was enough to get the green light and allow IO to do it Association project. And honestly, after playing a lot Association Shooters, I can’t wait for a more stealth oriented spy game. I’ve said that before IOI is the best developer To make a modern 007 game and I can’t wait to see what the studio is working on when they finally reveal more about it Project 007.
