After some searching on IO Interactive’s job listings, it has been discovered that the developer is working on a new, unannounced AAA action title. What makes things more interesting is that the developer certainly isn’t holding back in terms of praising its new project, claiming it to be “IO Interactive’s more than 10 year history in videogames”.
In addition, the listings revealed that the developer has several projects underway, each in a different stage of development. The listing even gave us a guarantee that we will continue to see IO Interactive making games in the future, saying that whomever is hired will “play a major part in the games we have in the future pipeline”.
IO Interactive is serious about finding the best Lead Character Designer, emphasizing that they “are prepared only to accept applications from the very best talent from around the world”.
Given the popularity of the Hitman series, one could hope that Hitman 5 is the new title in the making. There have been many rumors over the past couple of years regarding such a title. Moreover, two former IO Interactive employees claimed to have been working on the title at one point. However, IO Interactive is also behind hit games such as Freedom Fighters for the PC, Mini Ninjas and both Kane & Lynch titles.
