New Hitman in the Works

New Hitman in the Works

A new Hitman game is in the works over at IO Interactive, the independent developer shared today.

"We're making great progress," said IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak in a post celebrating the launch of Hitman’s Game of the Year edition. "We have exciting new features and some franchise firsts, which we can't wait to tell you all about."

“We don’t plan to start talking about that [the game] until some point in 2018,” Abrak continued.

 "Five months ago, I posted an open letter to let you know that Io-Interactive had become an independent studio once again," he added. "We've kept intentionally quiet since then, because we needed to focus inwards at what we want IOI to stand for, in terms of our employees, our culture and our ambitions and dreams for the future. It's been hard and challenging work, but also incredibly exciting as we lay the foundations for a new start for this special studio."

Earlier this year in May, publisher Square Enix put IO Interactive up for sale. They transitioned to an independent studio in June, while still maintaining the rights to the Hitman franchise.

Good to hear.
I am glad they're independent now. Hopefully that means they can make a real step forward with the franchise.
