Malmö, Sweden, July 6, 2023 – The Malmö based studio IO Interactive, independent video game developer and publisher best known for the Hitman and Freedom Fighters franchises, announces today the opening of a new studio in Brighton, United Kingdom.
Located in the heart of Brighton on the beautiful south coast of England, IOI Brighton is IO Interactive’s fifth studio and joins the existing teams in Malmö, Copenhagen, Barcelona and Istanbul. Together, all five IOI studios make significant contributions to the ambitious development and publishing efforts on all games currently in active development: Project 007, Project Fantasy and HITMAN.
IOI Brighton is located in the centre of one of the UK’s cultural and artistic hubs. Known for its beautiful beach and iconic pier, Brighton also pairs great food and shopping with incredible night-life and architecture, making it a stand-out choice for relocation within the UK.
The core team at IOI Brighton is already in place and IOI’s development philosophy of working on any project from any studio means that we’re bringing development of Project 007, the first James Bond origin story, to the UK. Our passionate teams across all IOI studios are unleashing their creativity into the iconic James Bond universe and we look forward to continuing to craft this ambitious and exciting game together with the new team at IOI Brighton.
“We are extremely proud and excited to open our next studio in Brighton, where we see enormous potential to expand our incredible team and attract the very best talent from the exciting UK development scene. We’re eager to expand our operations to new shores and believe that IOI Brighton is an extremely appealing destination for developers of all crafts,” said Hakan Abrak, CEO of IO Interactive.
