IO Interactive launches a new Barcelona studio

IO Interactive launches a new Barcelona studio as part of their ongoing plans to expand the company in the future, the company announced.

The newly launched studio will be known as IOI Barcelona, joining both IOI Copenhagen and IOI Malmö as IO Interactive’s third internal studio. In total, the company is working on three current projects: the Hitman franchise, Project 007 and an unannounced new IP.

“There are exciting times ahead at IO Interactive and I am proud to announce the next step in our plans for the most desirable game company in Europe. IOI Barcelona will become the third studio to join our efforts to create phenomenal experiences for our players and communities,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive.

“All three of our studios have extremely talented developers who are passionate and driven towards making an impact in our industry. A core part of our philosophy is that everyone at IOI has a significant and impactful role to play in realizing our dreams, regardless of where they’re located. Think of it as one studio, in multiple locations.”

IOI Barcelona will be situated in the center of Barcelona, and their core team is already in place. IOI Barcelona will focus on setting up a studio culture and environment that will bring on top level talent from around he world, to hopefully realize the company’s goals over the coming years.
