Square-Enix splits with IO Interactive
Falconer / May 11, 2017
Square-Enix has just announced that they are splitting their partnership with IO Interactive putting the future of the Hitman series in doubt. In 2009, Square-Enix took control of IO & is currently has begun negotiations with potential new investors to keep it going.
Square-Enix is keeping the IP for Hitman while discarding IO. This is what happened to the great Sleeping Dogs game which since has been dead as a series.
