IO Interactive promises details on new Hitman game by the end of this week

Posted on May 27, 2014 AT 03:25am

Back in January IO Interactive confirmed that it was working on a new Hitman game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and now community manager Travis Barbour has promised that more details about the title will be revealed by the end of this week.

“We promised an update on IOI’s new Hitman game in May and now we’re in the last week of May,” he wrote on Twitter.

In January, the developer revealed that the game would see Agent 47 stalk “his prey across the world, with the support of his long-term handler Diana Burnwood and the whole of the ICA.” The game is being developed using the Glacier 2 engine, taking “the best parts and what we have learnt through Hitman: Absolution and drawing inspiration from past titles like Contracts and Blood Money.” It will adopt an “open, non-linear level design approach,” according to IO, allowing it to “play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels.”

Contracts Mode will also be making a return, allowing players to create, build, and share challenges using the new larger environments.
