Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer IO Interactive (Hitman series) have announced they’ve entered into a new publishing and distribution agreement.
The new deal will include the worldwide publishing and distribution for a new “console and PC game experience.” IO Interactive’s studios in Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmo, Sweden will both be “integral” with the development of the new game.
“We’re very pleased to continue our relationship with the talented team at IO Interactive,” Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president David Haddad said in a press release. “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.”
IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak added, “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. 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 IO Interactive together with Warner Bros., we’re currently looking for ambitious talent to join our team in our Copenhagen and Malmo studios for this extraordinary journey.”
