In case you missed the news during E3, specifically during Sony’s press conference, there’s a new Hitman game coming this year. Bound for release on December 8, 2015, we have the next entry in this series.
It’s labeled, quite simply, Hitman. Now we have some leaked footage from, we assume, E3. How do we know it’s leaked? It carries a glorious banner just over halfway up the screen.
UNUSABLE SEQUENCE May contain placeholder assets & material requiring legal clearance
There are a few clips out there, though it appears they’re disappearing as Square Enix finds them and issues takedowns.
Hitman: Absolution, the last mainline entry in the series, was a bit of a mess. This one is being developed by the same studio, IO Interactive, though the hope is that it’ll be even more of an open world and less linear affair.
We’ll find out when it releases later this year.
