Warner Bros and IO Interactive today announced a worldwide publishing and distribution agreement to bring a new console and PC game experience to players worldwide.
IO Interactive has two development studios in the Scandinavian region. These are: IOI Copenhagen in Denmark and the recently opened IOI Malmö in Sweden. Therefore, both of them will be integral in the development of the new game under this partnership.
David Haddad, President at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, said:
“We’re very pleased to continue our relationship with the talented team at IO Interactive. IO Interactive has a longstanding legacy of creating iconic games. We’re looking forward to partnering on this next endeavor to bring a new console and PC gaming experience to players globally.”
Hakan Abrak, CEO at IO Interactive, also 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 IOI together with Warner Bros., we’re currently looking for ambitious talent to join our team in our Copenhagen and Malmö studios for this extraordinary journey.”
Warner Bros has not revealed any additional details about this unannounced game. However, my guess is that this will be a next-gen game. After all, IO Interactive is currently hiring and next-gen consoles will come out next year.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
