Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution, the fifth game in the series has been announced by Square Enix! The game will release in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.

From the Press Release:

"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.'

Showcasing IO Interactive's new proprietary Glacier 2™ technology, the game has been built from the ground up. Boasting a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design, HITMAN ABSOLUTION combines much-loved classic gameplay with completely new features never seen before in the Hitman franchise."

I am really excited about this and can't wait! I absloutely love the hitman series and have been waiting for a sequel to Blood Money which was the best in the series. Who's excited?


  1. Absolutely excited about this, cannot wait. It seems a lot of franchises are going back to their roots. That is a good sign.
