Hitman fans will have to wait a little longer for a new game as IO Interactive is shifting their focus on other titles.

CCO Christian Elverdam confirmed the news to Eurogamer, “Right now a major, major new Hitman game: that’s a little bit on hiatus, as we’re building another agent fantasy that’s also taking up a lot of our time.” He continued, “But obviously we’ll come back to beloved Agent 47. He’s still very much in the heart of this company.”

IO CEO and co-owner Hakan Abrak doubled down on Elverdam’s statements, touching on the other “agent fantasy” game that will be a new James Bond title. “And it’s not about survival now,” he said. “It’s about spreading our wings with other titles as well. Hitman will always be, as you said, intertwined with with IO Interactive, but we’ve done IPs before, and we have an unannounced project [the online fantasy game], we have Bond we’re working on, so it’s also absolutely amazing that besides the Hitman franchise that we absolutely love, we can also spread our creative wings and and expand a bit on the things that we want to achieve.”

Stay tuned for more info on IO Interactive’s upcoming games.
