The release of an action about an assassin with a barcode on the back of his head by episodes may have become a commercial success. Its developers from the Danish IO Interactive received a new office after the release of the final episode.
On November 10, the Danes announced that they were changing their location within their native Copenhagen. Now they have a “new, ultra-modern” office with a motion capture studio. IO Interactive has also changed its logo.
The move, as well as the rebranding, occurred after the release of the final sixth episode of the third-person action Hitman. Episodes were released for the game throughout 2016 – from March to October.
“There was a lot of skepticism, which, it seems to me, often happens when you do something new,” says Christian Elverdam, creative director of the studio, in an interview with Videogamer. – “Part of the skepticism was in the spirit of: and this will work at all, and you will postpone [the release dates of episodes], how it will work within such a game. I think we have proved that it works well for us.”
The studio is currently working on the next season of the game.
