For a while now, a thread on the Hitman forums has been engaged in one of those ever-so-trendy ‘Alternate Reality Games.’ Their findings appear to confirm Hitman 5.

You can read the whole tale by As is the way with these things, not a huge amount has been uncovered, but it seems safe to now say that Hitman 5 is indeed in the works. Other hints also point towards a proper reveal at E3, which may or may not be accurate, but which would make sense.
