Hitman 2 is official; publisher Warner Bros.
The title was announced with a fresh trailer of the bald-headed, freshly suited assassin getting back to work.
David Haddad, the President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed the game during a pre-E3 stream on its site.
The next installment in the Hitman series has been announced.
Unlike the previous game, this won't be released episodically and will be released as a full package right from the start, though there will be post-game content for players to sink their teeth into.
We are thrilled to partner with IO Interactive on Hitman 2 and bring the latest game in this iconic franchise to the passionate Hitman fan base and new players.
Hitman 2 will feature "hyper-detailed sandboxes full of living, breathing environments". From sun-drenched streets to dark and unsafe rainforests, nowhere is safe from the world's most creative assassin, Agent 47. However when Agent 47 "learns his target's true identity and the truth about his past, it changes everything" the description hints.
Preordering Hitman 2 grants players access to the "Sniper Assassin" mode, which lets them eliminate targets solo or with a friend.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Hitman 2 also is putting a focus on co-op action with a standalone Sniper Assassin mode...
Featuring another globetrotting adventure, Hitman 2 promises more "bustling global locations" including Miami, where you'll be able to sabotage a motorsport race in-progress in a variety of ways.
