IO Interactive confirmed to be working on new Hitman game

Back in June this year, IO interactive bought its independence from Square Enix, taking the Hitman franchise with it, and word from the studio has been relatively quiet since. He states, "we needed to focus inwards at what we want IOI to stand for, in terms of our employees, or culture, and our ambitions and dreams for the future". Details about the game are scarce at this point, but it seems that Hakan, the CEO of IO Interactive just wanted to let fans know that the franchise is alive and well, and that they are definitely working on something new.

However, his allusions to "the conclusion of Season One" and the "ever expanding World of Assassination" of HITMAN earlier in the post strongly suggests that, rather than reverting to the full retail release model of development, IO Interactive will once again produce an episodic series, taking Agent 47 to more exotic locales through staggered releases.

The company recently announced the availability of the new Game of the Year Edition of Hitman: The Complete First Season, which comes with a new four-mission campaign, along with extra weapons, suits and challenges, along with the return of Elusive Targets.

"I also want to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you, in advance, to everyone who supports us by purchasing the GOTY Edition or the Upgrade", Abrak said in his post, "Your support will directly help us to continue on our independent journey towards the next Hitman game and beyond". He didn't give any indication of whether or not this was an entirely new Hitman game, or Season 2 of the current one.
