Square Enix and IO Interactive have announced the new Hitman game, which is called… Hitman.
Okay, look, I know numbers are hard, but can we stop giving games names that are shorter than all of their predecessors? Hitman: Codename 47, then Silent Assassin, then Contracts, then Blood Money, then Absolution, then… Hitman. Which of those sound like the 6th game in the series, hmm?
Ahem. I digress.
There’s not much in the way of details; the announcement came via a CG trailer that had 47 running through the snow, interspersed with shots of what were presumably potential targets and locations in which 47 will find himself. And then we discovered it was called Hitman.
I’d imagine we’ll find out more about the game tomorrow, during Square Enix’s conference. For now, you can see the trailer below.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
