IOI’s James Bond game won’t come out until at least 2025

Following the conclusion of their HITMAN trilogy, IO Interactive announced that they are working on a video game based in the world of James Bond 007. Unfortunately for fans looking forward to the title, it seems you might have to wait quite a while.

As reported by Twitter user ‘DarkDetective’, IO Interactive recently published their annual fiscal report for the year ending 31st of March 2022, where the studio claimed that:

“We had a couple of years with solid revenue and profits, due to [the] launch of [HITMAN 3]. There is a risk the next couple of calendar years, the EBITDA [earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization] and profits will drop. This is due to long production phases ahead, before the next releases hit the market. More precisely fiscal 24 and 25 estimates show a significant decrease.”

What this statement hints at is the fact that fans shouldn’t expect to see a new game from IOI until at least March 2025. Officially, IOI has announced that they are working on the aforementioned 007 game.

That being said, leaks and rumours have claimed that the studio is also working on an ambitious dragon-themed fantasy RPG currently known as ‘Project Dragon’ in partnership with Xbox. According to the leakers, there are plans to support this game for up to a decade after launch, and so it is safe to say that IOI are currently working hard on both these projects – hence the lengthy waiting time.

With HITMAN 3 proving to be a major success for IOI, it is encouraging to see the team choosing to take their time with their upcoming projects, even if it means we have to wait for many more years.

KitGuru says: Are you excited for IOI’s projects? Which of the two catches your interest more? When do you think both games will be released? Let us know down below.
