With Warner Bros picking up IO Interactive, Tamer Asfahani asks Sven Liebold if this means a change for the franchise is on the horizon

Tamer: Congratulations on the new game, we’re very excited to get our hands on it. To start with, did you make any major changes to the game mechanics from the last release?

Sven: Thank you very much! We’re even more excited for people to finally return to the world of assassination! We actually went deep under the hood and did hundreds of tweaks. The most notable ones are new features like the possibility to actively hide in crowds or even foliage. We also have a new picture in picture features, giving the player instant feedback and information on relevant occurrences in the location. Another addition is the return of the fan-favorite briefcase. This time around though, you are not only able to hide your sniper rifle in there, but almost every other item at your disposal, opening many new layers of gameplay. And don’t forget, we have exciting, franchise-first games mode with Sniper Assassin, our online co-op mode, and Ghost Mode, our unique take on 1-versus-1 online multiplayer competition.
