Looks like Agent 47 has his next mission!
A logo for Hitman 2 popped up briefly on publisher Warner Bros. Games website last night and was saved on Resetera. The apparently accidental image posting came after the official Hitman Twitter and WB Games accounts posted a couple of Hitman teasing tweets Monday as can be seen below.
Hitman, first released in 2016, is considered by many to be high for the series. The game introduced contracts, which allowed IO Interactive to provide regular playable content updates to the game over time. While the game was initially published by Square Enix, a “Definitive Edition” was released early this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Hitman 2 would be the tenth Hitman game released for the franchise, which was created by IO Interactive and originally published by Eidos and Square Enix. In 2017, IO regained their independence and purchased back the rights for the franchise.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the announcement on 7 June!
