WBIE and IO Interactive Sign Deal for a New Console and PC Game

-

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and independent videogame developer 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 – IOI Copenhagen in Denmark and the recently opened IOI Malmö in Sweden – both of which will be integral in the development of the new game under this partnership.

“We’re very pleased to continue our relationship with the talented team at IO Interactive,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, adding that the company “has a longstanding legacy of creating iconic games, and we’re looking forward to partnering on this next endeavor to bring a new console and PC gaming experience to players globally.”

“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,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO. “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. Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive previously partnered on the release of various titles within the acclaimed Hitman series, including Hitman 2 (2018), Hitman: Definitive Edition (2018) and Hitman HD Enhanced Collection (2019).
