We mentioned almost this time last year that IO Interactive had managed to retain the rights to the Hitman franchise, after severing ties with publisher Square Enix. Today, the studio has revealed Hitman 2 which will be being published by Warner Bros. Interactive, just ahead of this year's E3, taking place next week.

And, if you pre-order today, the popular Sniper Challenge DLC is available for download and play immediately (so in hours and hours for Australian Internet users).

Here's the official line:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and independent game developer, IO Interactive, today announced HITMAN™ 2, the follow-up to the acclaimed international video game, HITMAN™.
