The Division Update Adds Global Events, New Gear, More

The Division’s 1.7 update is out now and it adds several changes to the game.

Daniel Craig Confirms He'll Return to Bond Role

Update: Daniel Craig officially confirmed he will return as 007 in James Bond 25 on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

When asked if he would return to the role, Craig responded ‘yes’ straight away.

“I always wanted to, I wanted a break,” said Craig of stepping back into Bond’s shoes.

Original story is below.

Despite reports claiming that Daniel Craig will indeed return to play 007 in James Bond 25, the man himself said he is unsure whether or not he will play Bond once again.

“No decision has been made at the moment, there’s a lot of noise out there and nothing official has been confirmed and I’m not, like, holding out for more money or doing anything like that,” Craig, who has portrayed Bond in four films so far starting with Casino Royale, explained on Boston radio show Morning Magic 106.7 (via Birth.Movies.Death.).
