Hitman fans, developer IO Interactive is said to be working on a “new game experience,” and has partnered with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment as the publisher and distributor. This IO Interactive new game has been confirmed for consoles and PC, though it doesn’t specify which ones.
While no other details was shared with this announcement, IO Interactive is hiring for both its Copenhagen and Malmo studios.
Here’s what IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak had to say about the partnership:
Over the past few years, Warner Bros. has shown us first-hand that they understand and respect our creative vision, and we’re looking forward to continuing this relationship. IO Interactive has a proud history of creating compelling characters and universes for our players to enjoy—it’s in our DNA. As we embark on this exciting project to create a new universe for IOI together with Warner Bros., we’re currently looking for ambitious talent to join our team in our Copenhagen and Malmö studios for this extraordinary journey.
While not specified, this IO Interactive new game will, highly likely, be developed with next-gen consoles in mind, especially since both Microsoft and Sony have been talking more and more about it.
Will it be Hitman 3 or something else entirely? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the former, but who knows.
