New Hitman title in development

Studio provides first details on what to expect

Posted on

The current developers for the Hitman franchise, Io-Interactive, have issued an open letter to fans regarding the upcoming future of the series.

The studio confirms that a new Hitman game is in development for PC and next-generation consoles. Players can expect to see a globetrotting Agent 47 at the prime of his career, with the support of his long-term handler Diana Burnwood and the whole of the ICA.

"We are building this game on the backbone of the Glacier 2 engine, using the best parts and what we have learnt through Hitman: Absolution and drawing inspiration from past titles like Contracts and Blood Money to fulfil the core Hitman fantasy. That means we’re packing in an extreme level of detail on the largest levels we have ever built for a Hitman game. We’ve adopted an open, non-linear level design approach to the game, ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels."

"Our aim is to create living, breathing and believable levels which will allow gamers to play around with the AI to create those unique moments every fan of the Hitman franchise loves."

The newly introduced Contracts Mode will be back, allowing players to create and build challenges by experimenting with the large levels and possibilities within them.

The last entry in the franchise was released in 2012 as Hitman Absolution.
