Pre-E3 2018: Hitman 2 Announced by IO Interactive

Formerly a subsidiary of Square Enix, IO Interactive regained independence last year shortly after E3 2017 and were able to bring with them the Hitman IP which they created 18 years ago giving players the choice between a brutal rush or stealth operation for each mission. One of the main features the game promised and delivered on was excellent gun-play, the ability to disguise one’s self with costumes and props, and a variety of ways to complete the objectives each level laid out for the player.

Over the years we’ve seen many Hitman games across a few different publishers but IO Interactive has always wanted to get back to their roots while evolving the original game’s premise further. Under Square Enix, Hitman has seen some interesting titles such as Hitman: Absolution and Hitman Go.

In a new partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive publishing a title that IO Interactive has announced today, called Hitman 2, we hope to see this vision truly realized. It would seem the deal with WB Games could be a one-off, with IO Interactive praising their new independence. The game has a lot to live up to by bearing the same name as Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, the 2002 release on PC, PlayStation 2, Original Xbox, and GameCube (and my personal favorite in the series).

IO Interactive Details New Hitman Game For PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, And Windows PC

Hitman will reach the next-generation of game consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE as well as Windows PC as developers IO Interactive recently announced. In addition to previous statements, IO has announced today that “Agent 47 at the prime of his career” is to be the focus of the next Hitman title utilizing the Glacier 2 Engine and that they are hoping to give the game more of a retro-inspired feel according to the old titles in the series coupled with an open-world approach to level design. The results should be interesting and we are looking forward to the next evolution in the Hitman franchise.

Hitman Ain’t Dead Yet…

Recently reports were circulating that a next-generation edition of the Hitman series was being cancelled by Square Enix as per LinkedIn Resume accounts of certain employee accounts in the developer world citing a change from one such title to a mobile title instead. With the worry that there will be too much of a negative down-spin on the company’s image and a settling down of hype for the next Hitman title, Square Enix has decided to kill those rumors right here and now.

A statement was released by Square Enix basically explaining what reporters had scrupulously noticed taking place with the resumes of devs on LinkedIn who were thought to be working on a next-gen Hitman title. These employees work at Eidos Montreal and Square Enix has stated that they are working on high-end mobile titles, some of which are in fact related to the Hitman franchise. S.E. also went on to notify gamers that they can expect a fresh and new installment of the Hitman series to arrive on next-gen eventually and that the title is being developed by IO Interactive who developed the Hitman games independently at first before becoming a major success story with subsequent releases in the franchise.

Although IO has had their ups and downs (*cough cough, Kane & Lynch is trash) we should be happy that the Hitman series is back in the hands of its original creators and give them the benefit of the doubt with revealing what could be a complete revival of the series after the fairly well received Hitman: Absolution title released not too long ago.
