Oh thats so amazing, great News! I hope they can also get Morten Iverson to write the Story again. Just thinking about it makes my nostalgia boner rock hard.

In all seriousness that is very exciting news, It’s nice to see old talent return to the studio. Weather or not he will end up working on future hitman projects time will tell. This will of course be a very different IO he returns to after a 15 years absence, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I look forward to see what projects he will part off.

Velkommen hjem Rasmus

15 years of professional growth could mean good things for upcoming games.

They have elevated him to the level of Vice President!!! 🛗 🛗

Very cool to see “fresh” old blood back at the studio! I also can’t wait for some IO streams so he can tell stories about how it was back in the early days. Everyone loves tales of yesteryear.

So that means the director is leaving before Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League release (planned in 2022). This is the next big game from Warner Bros and Rocksteady is one of the best game studios in England. It’s worth mentioning.

Anyway, good news for IO, it’s indeed a very very experienced Chief Design Officer (former EA DICE CDO).
