I hope (and expect) that we will get an original Bond model. As IO will likely do a series, I wouldn't mind having our own video game Bond separate from the film Bond and then get a decently prominent British actor to voice him.
A further dream would be to have one of the alumni become the video game Bond voice. Timothy Dalton perhaps?
May also push Ubisoft to release a new and proper Splinter Cell game.
You just made a lot of balding bond fans happy with that comment.
Also where is @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7 these days!?
As the talk at the moment is that it will be an origin story, I don't think they could go with Dalton. Maybe have one or more of the old actors do minor parts, maybe even a mentoring 00.
Although it would be absolutely hilarious to have a 74-year-old unironically voice a 20 or 30-something.
I would be fine with that being our bond... I wonder when are we going to get the first image of 007 my guess is may?
He's having himself a long hiatus, though he's not sure that he'll ever return.
@Risico007, indeed, he and I were quite strong in our desire to see IO handle a Bond game, couldn't be happier that it's finally happening.
You're probably right, but I mean, technically it's not a far cry from Sean Connery doing the voice in From Russia With Love (which did have some ironic hilarity seeing 30-something Bond with Connery's old voice).
hey dont count me out while i initially was more of an ubisoft man and a late bandwagon jumper I definitly was part of the IO group back in the day (weird to think 2013-217 was back in the day)
I really wished they'd done a game with Roger: he still sounded great and I think it could have been so much fun. Maybe he didn't want to, but I like to think he would have been game to play Bond again.
Had From Russia With Love been more successful then I feel like the possibility would have been explored. If so, I'm certain Roger would have done it. His voice in his later years had more depth to it but he still sounded close to his Bond years. Lazenby's voice still sounds very youthful. Reminds me of a later Cary Grant.
Roger Moore was originally going to voice Bond in Agent Under Fire, with John Cleese as Q. I don’t know why they didn’t get to come back.
Will do. As you said, it would be great if there was some gambling segments in the game. That's why I would have liked Rockstar, I feel GTA would have been a brilliant template for a Bond game; pop into a casino and do some gambling when you please. Get cool cars and drive them how you like, complete with gadgets.
Really? I've never heard that before.
Agreed. As I’ve mentioned before, the weight of the cartridge being inserted is powerful.
I am still beaming with this news. Hitman is my favourite video game franchise.
I think an open world Bond, in theory, would be an interesting experience. However, I feel like the Rockstar blueprint wouldn't quite work for Bond as a whole. I can't imagine the whole Bond story taking place in one massive location. I suppose they could break it into smaller locations to allow for a bit of globetrotting, but that's why I think Hitman's open-ended environments and mission structure will allow for a more cohesive Bond story.
I, too, would love some sort of open exploration to go around MI6 talking to staff and random people, and maybe take on "side-missions" that aren't necessary to complete the story but are fun to do on their own. :D
I imagine the first we will get a glimpse is E3 next summer.
dont get me super hyped... I am hoping this is the best bond game yet... and yes there needs to be a drunk Santa in the game!
