In a launch-day message, Io Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak confirmed that a new Hitman is in the works. Abrak stated..
“Five months ago, I posted an open letter to let you know that Io-Interactive had become an independent studio once again. 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.”
“One last thing about our next Hitman game; I want to let you know that we’re making great progress and we have exciting new features and some franchise firsts, which we can’t wait to tell you all about. You’ll have to wait a little longer as we don’t plan to start talking about that until some point in 2018.”
