Developer IO Interactive - famous for the recent Hitman series of games - has revealed today that it's working on a brand-new James Bond title, which will be the first mainstream Bond game in over a decade.

The working title is Project 007, and is described as a "wholly original Bond story", with players stepping into the shoes of the world's favourite Secret Agent in the very first James Bond origin tale.

There's no release date for this one, or even a suggestion of platforms as of yet - IO says it's currently recruiting "elite talent" to join the team that will build out the game, so we might be waiting a while for it yet.

Excited to see James Bond finally returning to the world of gaming? Let us know in the comments.
