Hitman developer IO Interactive will reveal a new project on Thursday, it’s announced.
The reveal will take place on the company’s YouTube channel at 6am PT/9am ET/3pm CET on November 19.
In October 2019 IO confirmed it was creating a “new universe” across its Danish studio in Copenhagen and its recently opened Swedish studio in Malmö. The new game was due to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive.
Warner Bros. and IO Interactive previously partnered for the release of several titles including 2018’s Hitman 2 and Hitman: Definitive Edition, and 2019’s Hitman HD Enhanced Collection.
WBIE president David Haddad said at the time: “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.”
IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak added: “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.”
