It’s been three years since the release of Hitman: Absolution, which means that we’re definitely in the right timeframe for a brand new installment of the famous franchise. Indeed, Io-Interactive has recently unveiled HITMAN – a brand new game that’s scheduled to be released on December 8 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Staying true to the recipe that made Hitman games so appreciated in the first place, this new title will allow players to engage in contract hits on influential targets in various locations all over the world, including the picturesque coast of Italy, the chic city of Paris, and the busy markets of Marrakesh.

However, the methods that are used to take out these targets depend completely on the player’s play style, which means that those who want to cause a bit of a bloodbath are free to do so, while stealthy players can do things their own way. The important thing is that these sandbox levels will be quite large and will probably feature some incredible graphics.

It’s also worth noting that HITMAN will initially come out in a digital form, which will make the developers’ job of modifying and expanding the game a lot easier. The Studio Head at Io-Interactive, Hannes Seifert, stated the following:

“This is new ground for HITMAN, coming out digital first enables us to do something new, bold and exciting. We are building a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination where we continuously develop the game, listening closely to the players as we release new locations, missions and hits as soon as they are ready – where $60 and not a dollar more gets you full access to the experience.”

“This game marks a new direction for the studio. With HITMAN, we are not only embracing our core fans in a new way by bringing them closer to the development than ever before but we are also laying the foundation for a very exciting future by embracing what a live environment can offer a title like this. It is only the beginning for us and for HITMAN.”
