Hitman developer IO opens up new studio in Sweden

IO Interactive, the creator and developer of Hitman, has established a new studio.

IO Interactive is based Copenhagen, Denmark, but its new studio is instead established in Malmo, Sweden. Though today’s announcement doesn’t go into too much detail, the developer confirmed that the new team will be working on Hitman content, as well as new franchises.

“This will expand our muscles for creating brand-new and exciting endeavours, new universes, new franchises. In other words, IOI Malmo and Copenhagen are one family,” said IOI CEO Hakan Abrak.

“The IOI expansion in Malmo was a natural choice as there is a very strong existing video game industry. I believe it has all opportunities to become the epicentre of game development in Scandinavia.”

The new studio is already open, and IO is hiring for a variety of positions.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing more from IO than just Hitman soon.
