Posted By | On 28th, Oct. 2012

IO Interactive may not be developing the next Hitman game, according to a new report on GameTrailers. Karsten Lund from Edios Montreal revealed that one of the challenges for them was to retain the DNA of the franchise.

“IO Interactive have been doing a very good job of putting the player front and center and have given us some of the most memorable moments in gaming; emergent stories of how players completed missions shared at the water cooler, this to me is the core DNA of a Hitman game. I know how hard that is to create; I was at IO for the last 11 years. Our challenge is obviously to retain that DNA, while establishing ownership in our team and of our game.”

Hitman: Absolution looks terrific too as you can see from our preview here, and it seems like Eidos Montreal have done a great job with the current game. Lund reveals that the team is excited about working on the Hitman franchise.

“Every time we mention we’re working on the Hitman franchise, we see a smile on our peers’ lips,” he said. (Via VG247) “The Hitman games best represent some of the things that gaming is all about: living, immersive worlds for you to play in, and the freedom to do things your way.

The game will be released later this year for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
