Whoever gets the license, I hope they shake things up in the future. You know, don't try to be Call of Duty. Although, I think 3rd person Bond was better in recent years, I'd like to see some new ground broken, for Bond anyway. Maybe open world elements, or RPG elements. Maybe a Bond game similar to the Mass Effect franchise where its semi open world. You travel to different, smaller sandboxes and linear missions. Make dialogue choices in the cut scenes You want to be witty you can or serious, you can. You also have down time to explore and do side activities. Go to the casino as Bond. You could play hold em poker, black jack, baccarat, roulette. Play golf, race, or skeet shoot as bond. Go to Bond's apartment to decorate, change cloths, customize weapons, check emails, etc. Explore MI6 hq, have a garage with Bond cars or acquire them as you progress though the game. like mass effect, you form relationships with Bond Girls and friendships with characters like Felix Leiter. Hopefully the story would be well written and the game epic in scale. Maybe as icing on the cake, you unlock alternate Bond skins after beating the game so you can play as whatever Bond you prefer, at least for mini games. A few of these ideas would be welcome.
I'd play that. Though truth be told, I'll play anything James Bond, no matter how bad. Still, a guy can dream.
