IO job ads hint at Kane & Lynch 3

Work underway on third person co-op title.

A recent IO Interactive recruitment call has offered the strongest hint yet that a new Kane & Lynch title is in the works.

As spotted by Gamerzines, an ad for senior programmers on the developer's website references an "unannounced 3rd person game with strong cooperative multiplayer elements."

Recruits will be expected to "identify problems with existing multiplayer unaware technology and propose solutions," and "advise the game teams on how to best solve multiplayer problems."

Should Kane & Lynch 3 prove forthcoming, don't look too surprised. Despite dismal reviews of 2010's Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Square Enix exec Ian Livingstone last year suggested that the franchise was far from dead and buried.

"We haven't made any announcements about Kane & Lynch going forward, but we all know that Kane and Lynch are two amazing characters who have a lot of brand equity. People like those guys, so they're not going to disappear," he said.
