Makers of the popular Hitman series, IO Interactive, is teasing a new project reveal. They announced on Twitter today, about the time and date of the reveal, which will take place on the company’s YouTube channel.
During September, many had the idea that a remastered version of Freedom Fighters was coming. Unfortunately, it was just a PC re-release. That does not stop us from speculating what is next for this 22-year-old studio. Late last year, IO Interactive joined hands with Warner Bros. The tie-up promised to deliver a new console and PC game experience for players. The secretive ‘new project’ can be something of an entirely new universe because of this tie-up.
Yet, no true Hitman fan will miss out on the timing of this announcement. The 20th birthday of the Hitman series takes place on November 21, 2020. With Hitman 3 already announced, it seems very unlikely that anything to do with Agent 47 is going to get revealed.
According to the job listings on IOI’s career page, they have listed out openings for a ‘multiplayer network programmer’. This could be for an entirely new IP, which will probably be a multiplayer game. In addition, the job listings are all for an “unannounced project”. Therefore, it all fits the bill.
Unfortunately, there is really not much to go on from the post on Twitter. Fans will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what is cooking in the offices of Denmark. Though the last Freedom Fighters game was released in 2003, fans of the yesteryear title would surely love it if the game got a franchise of its own. Even IOI had shown interest in the prospect a while ago.
Another common speculation is a return for Metal Gear Solid. With little to go on, it is best we wait until tomorrow for the reveal to happen. Tune in at 2 PM, in UK and 9 AM in USA PT on their YouTube channel.
