Senior Talent Joins IO Interactive

May 12, 2021 IOI Studio, News

We are excited to announce that two high-profile developers have recently joined IOI to take on senior roles and work on our current and upcoming projects and universes; Hitman, Project 007 and our new, unannounced original IP.


First, we’d like to welcome Rasmus Højengaard.

Rasmus was the Game Director on Hitman Blood Money back in 2006 and returns to IOI after some years away.

He has since worked as Head of Design at DICE in Stockholm, where he was involved in the BattlefieldStar Wars Battlefront, and Mirror’s Edge franchises. We’re happy to welcome Rasmus back to IOI from Rocksteady Studios, where he worked as a Director focusing mainly on Core Design.

As IO Interactive’s new Studio Design Director, his creative talents and leadership will be part of shaping all our ongoing projects and universes.


We’re also happy to welcome Andrzej Zawadzki.

Andrzej joins us from CD Projekt Red in Warsaw, where he has been an impactful member of the team working on Witcher 3 and most recently Cyberpunk 2077 as the Lead Gameplay Designer.

Andrzej joins IOI as a Senior Game Designer for our new, unannounced IP. His experience, drive and imagination will be a crucial part of establishing a completely new universe.

Rasmus and Andrzej will join other top talent that has recently started at IOI, across our three studios in Copenhagen, Malmö and Barcelona. All of the IO Interactive studios will make a significant impact to all projects.

Take a look at our current open positions to learn more.
