REPORTS SUGGEST THE VETERAN TEAM IS WORKING ON A “DRAGON THEMED IP” WHICH IS STILL IN ITS EARLY STAGES



The studio Hitman IO Interactive is reportedly working on an exclusive game for the Xbox , according to a report.

A video posted by Windows Central Gaming suggests that the Hitman developer has teamed up with Microsoft to work on the new “dragon-themed IP”, which will be published under the banner of Xbox Game Studios.

The report refers to an interview with the GamesIndustry.biz with the CEO of IO Interactive, Hakan Abrak, in which he confirmed that the team was working on other projects besides a title of James Bond already announced.

"Without going into too much detail, we have a third universe that we're actively working on, which is a little different and absolutely a child of love," Abrak said in the interview.

"It's something our core people, our veteran team, have been dreaming of for some time."

Jez Corden from Windows Central Gaming tweeted that they had evidence that Microsoft and IO had been discussing the dragon-themed IP for some time now, and that this interview with Abrak suggested the project was in the works.

This was corroborated by Twitter user Kobrille, who specializes in reporting news from the Xbox Game Studios.

On the day I interviewed Abrak was published, Kobrille twittou : “Sometimes there are news of games that seem boring on the surface, but are actually the start of something ambitious and have a direct connection to Xbox. Sometimes that moment happened this week. ”


So, yea. I guess this is out in the wild then.

It's early, and years away. But it's exciting.https://t.co/7BBmRwTSwq

Following the report of Windows Central Gaming, Cobrille confirmed: “I think this has already been publicized. It's early and for years. But it's exciting. ”



Abrak recently said that a IO Interactive received a series of “really attractive” takeover offers following its split from former parent company Square Enix , but ended up choosing to go alone.

In addition to the reported Dragon-themed IP with Xbox, IO is currently working on an officially licensed James Bond game, tentatively titled Project 007.
