The Hitman series has had a cult following that has been around since the franchise’s start with Hitman: Codname 47 back in 2000. With the upcoming release of Hitman: Absolution fast approaching, Square Enix and IO Interactive are ramping up their advertising with the creation of the brand new Barcode Society. This one stop shop is sure to be a big hit with fans of Agent 47.
