IO Interactive goes independent, Hitman lives

IO Interactive goes independent, Hitman lives

Therefore I am proud to announce today that IOI is now officially an independent studio. We have successfully concluded our negotiations with Square Enix and have agreed to a management buyout. Crucially, we will keep all of the rights to the Hitman IP.

As a massive fan of the latest Hitman the news that Square Enix was looking to ditch IO was devastating. This is the best possible outcome and is extremely exciting. Bring on season two.
