After years of waiting for an announcement, IO Interactive has announced the Fifth Hitman game, Hitman Absolution.
At the moment only a short description of the game has been given but in the year to come I’m sure we will be hearing more about this game. The story once again follows Agent 47, a modern assassin. This time taking on a extremely dangerous contract involving him spiraling into a dark conspiracy in which he must go on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
Absolution, coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC will also showcase IO Interactive’s New Glacier 2 Game Engine. Featuring classic Hitman gameplay but completely new features fresh to the Hitman franchise.
You can expect Hitman Absolution in 2012. Whether it be early or late will be another thing. Check out the teaser trailer for Hitman Absolution below:
