Since IO Interactives split from Square Enix we haven’t really heard anything much about Hitman and where the game is heaeding but now IO Interactive have come out and said there is much more Hitman on the way, beginning with the Game of The Year Edition.
After Square Enix and IO Interactives departure from themselves IO Interactive has said in a blog post that the company has taken time to reflect on itself to correctly determine where the franchise will lead to. Hakan Abrak the chief executive officer at IO Interactive explains in the blog post that he believes that the Game of the Year content has established a good foundation for future game releases, but what is the main contributor is the support from the players.
“Your support will directly help us to continue on our independent journey towards the next Hitman game and beyond,” reads Abrak’s blog post. “We’re in this together and we promise that we will channel our passion and skills to shine through in everything that comes from this studio.”
“One last thing about our next Hitman game,” added Abrak. “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.”
