Square-Enix, Eidos and Danish developer IO Interactive have announced
Hitman Absolution, a new addition to their successful franchise featuring everyone's favourite bald and bar-coded assassin, Agent 47.
HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47™, a cold–blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman® fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is 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.”
The game is in the works for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3; a release date has not yet been hinted at. That's about all we know so far, but we're told that Hitman Absolution will be among the games behind showcased by Square Enix at the annual E3 expo in Los Angeles next month.
