Hitman 3, the famous assassination game developed by IO Interactive, is on the agenda with great success. Hitman 3 sold 300 percent more than the previous game in the series, Hitman 2.
The game, which debuted in January 2021, quickly surpassed the sales figures of the previous game in the series, Hitman 2, and pleased its producers. Following Hitman 3’s success, IO Interactive decided to expand its gaming studios.
Hitman 3 paved the way for potential games with sales success
IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak said they are pleased with the sales success of the Hitman 3 project but are not too surprised. At the same time, Hakan Abrak announced that they have decided to expand the company’s game studios, and said that they have opened their third studio in Barcelona after the Studios of Copenhagen, Malmö.
“IO Interactive Barcelona will be the third studio to participate in our efforts to create extraordinary experiences for our players and communities. All three of our studios have highly skilled developers who are passionate and determined to make an impact in our industry. A fundamental part of our philosophy is that everyone in IOI plays an important and effective role in realizing our dreams, no matter where they are found. Imagine that we are one studio in more than one place.”
Io Interactive’s expansion of gaming studios is undoubtedly behind the desire to work on more games. The company is currently working on two different games. The first is a James Bond play called “Project 007”. The second is an action game in which the company collaborates with Warner Bros Interactive and keeps its name a secret. Let’s also mention that the company has been working on this game for 2 years.
