Hitman: Absolution Announced

Earlier today the Square Enix owned IO Interactive announced the forthcoming title in the Hitman series, Absolution. It's been five years since we've seen Agent 47 do what he does best, and now his skills will be put to the ultimate test. Betrayed by his own agency, 47 finds himself in the heart of a twisted conspiracy. Hunted by those he once trusted and international law enforcement, 47 must take his skills to the next level if he intends on coming to terms with the truth amidst the lies and corruption that has overtaken his world.

Absolution will take advantage of Glacier 2, a new, more advanced engine developed by IO for next-gen consoles. Tore Blystad, Director of Absolution, commented on the game's feel with the new engine saying that it should be a "familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games".

While there has only been a tid-bit of information pertaining to the game's plot, we can look to E3 for more info and possibly a release date as well. Stay tuned for our E3 coverage for all the exciting updates.
