No Time To Die – the last James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig – is out now in UK cinemas, and Bond’s creator Ian Fleming is appearing in a game for the first time. Curiously enough though, it’ll be in next year’s John Carter: Warlord of Mars rather than a Bond game – despite Fleming having no connection to the franchise.
John Carter: Warlord of Mars was announced earlier this year as a first-person action/adventure and was supposed to get a Kickstarter in April, but that seems to have been postponed. Developer Tanglewood Games includes veterans from Fortnite and Sea of Thieves – and the game is apparently set to be released in May 2022.
The game will be mostly set on Mars, but will also contain opening sections set during World War 2 – as the story has been updated so John Carter is now a captain during WW2 rather than the American Civil War, and gets sent to Mars/Barsoom thanks to an experiment by the Nazis. The man in charge of the operation, Tanglewood has revealed, is none other than James Bond’s creator Ian Fleming.
