First Hitman 5 Screen Leaves a Lot to the Imagination
It’s been a while since we talked about a Hitman game. The last one was Hitman: Blood Money, which released in 2006. Since then, developer IO Interactive has been immersed in created the Kane & Lynch games, which have enjoyed a lukewarm reception.
That may all be changing, as an alternate reality game over at Hitmanforum.com is starting to reveal. The community there has uncovered a number of images that appear to reveal a new Hitman game, tentatively referred to as Hitman 5.
A number of the images reference the CN Tower in Toronto, the world’s tallest free-standing structure, leading to speculation that Hitman 5 will take place in Canada. The final image, included above, looks to be taken from a CGI movie.
IO has confirmed in a post on Hitmanforum.com that that the ARG has ended, and that the game will be announced at E3 in June.
If the game is indeed Hitman 5, it will be the first Hitman title built for current-gen consoles. While Blood Money did appear on the XBox 360, it was an upscaled XBox port.
To say that I’m excited by this news is a mild understatement. The Hitman series is one of my favorite of all time, and a worthy successor from IO is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. You can bet that we’ll have plenty of info from E3 on this one for you.
