Not exactly, but this does sound like an excellent fit! Off the top of my head, I can't think of a better studio for this.

Great news! I'm a huge 007 fan (Books, Games, Movies) and we're in real need of another quality title in the series. IO is a perfect fit too, I've always thought that the Hitman series is so classy and stylish, the perfect style for Bond. The only thing I wonder is who's going to be the face of the game? Cause Daniel Craig is on his way out and by the time the game comes out he could be old news.

I hope they choose third person! Nothing against FPS games (and I do admit that 007 has a history in the FPS genre) but it's my personal preference ;P
