I wonder who will they cast as Bond. I like Craig but he's too old now, especially for an origin story.

Was it here or Era arguing that this license wasn't worth holding at this point in time and BAM this new drops.
Wonder if it will be considered canon or not, or if it will toy with 'It's just a moniker passed between agents' theory. Oh so much is possible. IO is a great dev for such a game methinks

Haven't had a good bond game since Everything or Nothing which legit was INCREDIBLE back then (hail and also rip Visceral Studios), high hopes for this one.

IO are legit fantastic at third person anything, Freedom Fighters is often a game that people forget when it comes down to their output but it also was a gem , excited to see what they can do with this license

I mean, just a Bond skinned Hitman would be a pretty great use of the licence, so any steps above and beyond that is going to be icing on the cake

If it's a Bond origin story, it won't have Daniel Craig. He's too old. I'm just wondering what mechanical template the game will have. I think it should strive to stand apart from Hitman a bit. But the paradox is that Hitman's formula is fairly similar to the GoldenEye formula. Here's a list of objectives, he's a sandbox, complete them using these tools. There's the issue of tone, too. Do you go Connery/Lazenby-style? Gritty Dalton? Post-Cold War/Fake News Brosnan? Or do Craig-style again? After Austin Powers, the Bond franchise become afraid to be cheery, to have cute little jokes, to have Q as an older man with weird gadgets.

IOI's modern Hitman games are full of the kind of jokes that modern Bond overtly avoids, but if they embrace that in their Bond game, the Bond game becomes more and more similar to their Hitman games.
