In addition to retaining Hitman, IO kept ownership of Freedom Fighters, a 2003 third-person shooter that appeared on sixth gen consoles and received high praise.
Freedom Fighters was one of my favorite OG Xbox game
I played Freedom Fighter on PC when I was a kid. Damn, the game was so freaking good.
I can live with this IO. So how about that sequel, so I can forgive you already?
WOW!!!!!! I would be so hyped if Freedom Fighters returned but it's very disappointing that Kane and Lynch is still on ice because the story has so much potential. Both games also features Jesper Kyd's best work.
And nothing of value was lost.
Good..freedom fighters anyday, anytime anywhere over kane and lynch..bring it on
Aww man I've wished for a new freedom fighters for years! The first kane and lynch was a great game. Dog days was absolute trash though
Freedom Fighters was such a satisfying game to complete, a mix with this and mercenaries would be pretty awesome
i played on mi game cube excellent game!
Loved freedom fighters! Surprised to see so many people actually liked that game. I thought it flew under the radar when it was released.
Be interesting to see what direction they take and how long they stay afloat. At least they have their beloved Hitman and Freedom Fighters. Though my bet, if not a new Hitman, they'll be working on something new. "As it turns out, the Kane & Lynch IP stayed with Square Enix following the separation from IO. So did Mini Ninjas, if anyone cares." I absolutely care. IO did an incredible job on Mini Ninjas and it was a great game. Granted now that they're independent I doubt IO would bring a new one or remaster it but... it was a great game and I'd love a sequel. I certainly don't see Square doing anything with the IP. Hopefully, if I'm wrong, they do it justice.
Hell Yeah! I would love to see a proper sequel or even a remaster and Good Riddance! to the K&L series, those damn psycho junkies...
I want a Freedom Fighter PS2 to PS4 remaster
That game literally touched the heart
Freedom fighters please come back on this new generation. Who the hell cares about Kane & Lynch. I used to play Freedom Fighters religiously on my PS2. Would love to play on my Xbox one. Even X1X once I get it.
I can still see the Freedom Fighters rag doll physics when I close my eyes. Such a classic gem.
Fucjing yes. Give me a new freedom fighters with that sweet couch vs. Mode with the AI soldiers!
Freedom Fighters revival ftw
Who cares? Kane and Lynch was for fags.
Man I freaking loved freedom fighters on ps2 I had no idea io were the ones who made it
I’m absolutely ok with this would love to see Freedom Fighters on the OG Xbox BC list
Fantastic game. Release again,IO.
Great they can stand in their own
Played freedom fights both on the game cube and the ps2 and i loved that game so much oh man the co op with the family
Freedom fighters was actually good, kane & lynch was shit :D
