Hitman fans have been eagerly waiting for the next installment in the Hitman series. After several months of rumors and weird clues popping up all over the net, Square Enix has now formally announced the fifth game in the Hitman series, ‘Hitman Absolution’. A small teaser of the game was released, and it does just that, it teases.
HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47™, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman® fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world.”
Hitman Absolution is scheduled for a 2012 release. The press release also mentions that the game with be showcased at E3 so expect to hear more of the game then. Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think.
