Hitman Absolution Announcement
Platform: Xbox360, PS3, and PC
Release Date: TBD
Developer: IO Interactive, Square Enix
Announced today, the Hitman series will gain one new chapter in the epic story of Agent 47. It has been years since we have seen the notorious bald man, bearing the black suit in action. Well, that is, if you don’t count the movie. Even at that, it has still been years. But I digress. IO Interactive, which is part of Square Enix Europe, will be building this silent blood bath from the ground up. Get ready for Hitman Absolution.
The game also promises a more than unique experience utilizing the Glacier 2™ technology. While many other engines boast their latest moves and next-gen features, this is something that players will be wanting to see. Get ready, because we will have some news for you as Hitman Absolution will be available at E3 2011.
“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.”
