IO Interactive, the talented studio behind the Hitman series has announced the extension of their deal with publishing giant Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for a new game coming to PC and console.

IOI CEO Hakan Abrak stated that the upcoming title would be set in a "new universe", so it's highly likely that the recently opened studio in Sweden is taking the lead.

Abrak further went on to say "We're looking forward to continuing this relationship. IO Interactive has a proud history of creating compelling characters and universes for our players to enjoy--it's in our DNA."

Warner Bros. president David Haddad stated, “IO Interactive has a longstanding legacy of creating iconic games, and we’re looking forward to partnering on this next endeavor to bring a new console and PC gaming experience to players globally.”

It's great to see Warner Bros. backing the studio as they've had a rather tumultuous few years with previous publishers.

The studio, while best know for its Hitman games, has some very talented staff and I can't wait to see what they do with a brand new IP. As much as I want something new, I still wish they would make a sequel to one of my favourite games, Freedom Fighters, but I should probably give up on that dream.IO Interactive, the talented studio behind the Hitman series has announced the extension of their deal with publishing giant Warner Bros.
