This was the first time the 007 franchise has killed off their lead; an incredibly bold move.
Presumably, this means that the next Bond reboot will be set in another universe, a bit like when Batman is recast.
Back in October last year, the producer teased to Total Film: “It will have to be reimagined, in the way each actor has reimagined the role. That’s what is so exciting and fun about this franchise; the character evolves. Eventually, when we have to think about it, we’ll find the right person.”
