Fans of the Hitman series can take a deep breath and rejoice because Square Enix and IO Interactive have just revealed the existence of Hitman: Absolution via a teaser trailer you can see below. In the trailer there isn’t much actually shown besides a barcode with 110706 highlighted. This coupled with the fact that Square Enix also said that more information will be given out on June 7th at E3 makes those numbers match perfectly.
Tore Blystad from IO Interactive says that “For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy” and that it will be “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.”
Agent 47’s been betrayed by those he once trusted and now with the police hunting him down he must find himself in a personal journey in the dark world that he involved himself with. Hitman: Absolution will use IO Interactive’s Glacier 2 technology and will be built from the ground up for a game unlike any other Hitman before it.
