Speaking to GamingIndians.com, Eidos president Ian Livingstone has revealed that Danish developer IO Interactive is currently working on three titles: Mini Ninjas, Kane and Lynch 2 and a new entry in the Hitman franchise.

Asked about a new Hitman title, Livingstone said: "It's being worked on, but there's been no announcement on the release date yet. We haven't even announced the game yet, so everything you hear about the next Hitman game is purely speculation at this point."

He added: "... it's IO Interactive. They're making Hitman, Kane and Lynch and also Mini Ninjas; all at the same studio."

Regarding Kane and Lynch 2, Livingstone noted: "There's a target date for September, but as you understand, these games often slip because the production times are so difficult to predict due to the amount of work they have to put into them now in high-end consoles. It's a tough business."
