IO To Work on New IP After Hitman: Absolution
IO Interactive has been working on Hitman games for over ten years, along with forays into the Kane & Lynch universe, and they’re about to try something new. After they wrap up Hitman: Absolution, studio head Niels Sorensen tells Gamasutra, they’re going to split up the team into two groups.
One group will help out the new Square Enix Montreal studio on another Hitman game, and everyone else will be working on a new IP. I guess we can be thankful they aren’t going back to Kane & Lynch after the atrocious sequel.
It’s always worth celebrating when a studio goes from making endless sequels to a new IP, and so I’m gonna celebrate this news. And IO is a solid studio, Kane & Lynch 2 aside, so this will probably be a good hing for gamers. Yay!
