There's been some confusion about the fate of the Hitman series as of late, and series developer IO Interactive has taken to their blog to release a statement that helps to clears a few things up. In the open letter to fans, the studio explains that they're hard at work on the next AAA instalment and provided some tantalising new details about the game.

Stating in the letter, the yet-to-be-named title will be running on "the backbone of the Glacier 2 engine, using the best parts and what we have learnt through Hitman: Absolution and drawing inspiration from past titles like Contracts and Blood Money to fulfil the core Hitman fantasy."

The letter also revealed that the game will feature largest environments yet for the series, which will support checkpoint-free, sandbox-style gameplay. These changes could be a godsend to some, whose frustration of previous titles stemmed from being re-spawned in impossible save positions.

The Contracts Mode from Absolution is also returning, enabling players the chance to create and build challenges through their own assassination attempts. IO Interactive also hinted that Agent 47's unexplainable deep pockets have now disappeared, suggesting that users will be unable to hold an unrealistic amount of weaponry.

IO ends the letter by teasing us that more info will be coming later in the year, so stay tuned for more in the coming months as we get closer to the bigger events like E3 2014.
