The Next Hitman Game May Not Be Developed By IO Interactive

In the middle of a piece by Karsten Lund, a longtime IO employee currently at Square Enix Montreal, he casually mentions the following:

"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."

In other words: The next Hitman game won't be coming from IO Interactive.

IF IO DONT DEVELOP IT, IT WONT WORK! THE TEAM BEHIND HITMAN IS THE ONLY REASON IT IS STILL A SUCCESSFUL PROPERTY! SQUARE ENIX WILL RUIN HITMAN JUST LIKE THEY RUIN ALL THEIR OWN FRANCHISES!

Who are you yelling at?

It would suck if IO Interactive doesn't make the next Hitman, but it confirms there will be another one. I still can't wait for Absolution and I'm sure it will be great.

Square Enix Montreal will definitely ruin the sereis if it gets in their hands.

Well then, that will be the end of Hitman for me.

I thought it was already known a new dev team would be making a Hitman game, but not once have I heard that IO would be moving on.
Only way that would happen is if Square Enix shuts them down, Hitman is their baby.

I guess we're on the brink of another franchise's destruction? This gen has done this many times.
