I.G.I. Origins, which was announced in March, finally got more details revealed by Toadman Interactive (the publisher), and Antimatter Games (the developer – they previously developed Rising Storm 2: Vietnam).
„The prequel to 2000’s Project I.G.I., I.G.I. Origins is a first-person stealth shooter hybrid where players are encouraged to think their way in and shoot their way out. Experience a high octane thrill ride through a spy fantasy world of gadgets and guns against the vivid, sumptuous backdrop of the 1980s. Unravel a mystery that threatens to plunge the world into a new era of nuclear annihilation. You’re going in. [I.G.I. could be the short term for I’m Going In as well – the ed.] Think your way in. Shoot your way out.
The year is 1980. You play code name “Regent” an agent in the service of MI6 [one of the United Kingdom’s Intelligence Agencies, the other being MI5 – the ed.] on active duty. Tasked with critical responsibilities of national security, Regent will undertake a series of missions across the world to achieve the objectives of Spy paymasters in a dramatic, filmic experience that explores the origins of the Insitute of Geotactical Intelligence. [This is also what I.G.I. can stand for – the ed.] Using a variety of weapons and gadgets at your disposal, your actions will determine the boundaries of where friends and enemies lay, as you seek to uncover the truth behind events leading to world-shattering ramifications,” the game’s website says.
Despite its release window, I.G.I. Origins, the third game in the series, will be a current-gen title. According to the plans, Toadman Interactive wants to publish Antimatter Games’ work in 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will likely get a lot of attention, and it will be hard for it to reach what the previous titles did in the series.
