Hitman developers IO Interactive is teaming up with Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment for their next console and PC game.
After the publishing deal between Warner and IO for the fantastic assassin simulation Hitman 2, the duo is teaming up for an all-new unannounced title.
Partnering with both of IO’s teams in Copenhagen and Malmö, the companies are currently recruiting for development on the new title. Warner Bros state that both of the teams’ developmental prowess “will be integral in the development of the new game under this partnership.”
“We’re very pleased to continue our relationship with the talented team at IO Interactive,” said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment David Haddad President. “IO Interactive has a longstanding legacy of creating iconic games, and we’re looking forward to partnering on this next endeavour to bring a new console and PC gaming experience to players globally.”
“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,” said IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak. “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.”
IO Interactive is currently hiring for 18 different positions on their website. From senior animators to an Executive Producer position, IO’s newest project may be in very early stages.
