Next-Gen Hitman Confirmed


Today, in an open letter to all fans, Io-Interactive detailed their work on the next Hitman in the series.  IoI says that the new game will be on next-gen consoles and PC and will be the most detailed yet, combining the best elements from Absolution, Blood Money, and Contracts.

IoI describes the game as an open world platform, utilizing the Glacier 2 game engine.  The levels are described to be non-linear and will pack an extreme level of detail.  In addition, they will be checkpoint-free, sandbox style levels that will create the most realistic environments.  IoI says:

“The game concentrates on the core Hitman fantasy of using a wide range of tools to take out a diverse group of targets across expansive, exotic locations around the world.”

Contracts mode will make its return and you will be able to create/build challenges utilizing the new larger levels and share them with friends.

IoI promises more details to be released as we move forward into the 2014 year.  Check out the full press release HERE.
