IO Interactive has shared the first piece of concept art for its Hitman title that is in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The developer started its open letter to fans by confirming that it wouldn’t be showing off the game at E3 this year. “We know the worst thing is to hope for something that doesn’t turn up; so we wanted to let you know that our next Hitman is going to be under wraps for a bit longer. We’re focusing all of our time and efforts into creating the best possible Hitman game. That’s our number one priority and we don’t want to divert valuable resources to show something before it’s ready.”
IO said that it is currently hard at work “building exotic and expansive locations for the new game.” The first piece of concept art (above) shows a location in Central Europe, and the entire building in the image will be explorable, inside and out. “For a sense of scale, the building on its own is larger than any location in Hitman Absolution,” IO added.
“As we move through the year, we’ll have some details to share with you and we’ll keep you posted right here on the blog,” the developer concluded. “We will only lift the lid on the game once we feel we’re ready to. In the meantime, we’ll continue to answer as many of your questions as we can both in the forums and on Twitter.”
