Danny O’Dwyer of Noclip went over to Copenhagen for a massive 4 part documentary of the legendary studio IO Interactive. He has confirmed the existence of a Hitman 3 as well as a new IP from the studio during the first episode of the series.

Earlier this year IO Interactive opened up a new studio across the bridge in Malmö, Sweden. And while much of the team is working on new Hitman content, and looking ahead to a 3rd Hitman game, one that Hakan says may once again go episodic, the majority of the studio, at least here in Copenhagen, is working on something secret. And rather excitingly, something new.

Hakan on the other hand isn’t as straightforward as O’Dwyer, mainly to keep the announcements a full surprise but does acknowledge to advancement into something than just Hitman.

We are still very much independent. We are looking into the future with new things, potentially new IPs that we might be working on. We’ve created 4 originals IPs from scratch, we always worked and created these characters and worlds and whatnot, it is apart of our DNA. I’m looking forward to bringing new stuff as well, apart from growing Hitman into the world.

Hitman 2, the latest game from IO Interactive, launched in 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It was the first game after the separation from Square Enix, and the title was published by Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment.
