June 7, 2018 HITMAN, News

We are super excited to announce HITMAN 2, the next game from IO Interactive and the next installment in the Hitman franchise.

HITMAN 2 will take you on a global adventure across a mix of bustling international locations, including a vibrant Miami setting with the colorful ambiance of an in-progress motorsport race bringing a new backdrop to the series. From sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests, each intricate location provides multiple paths to discover and unparalleled game depth.

Continuing the ultimate spy thriller story, HITMAN 2 allows players to take on the role of the masterful Agent 47 and embark on a mission to hunt the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when 47 learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same.

As you would expect with any Hitman game, HITMAN 2 features hyper-detailed sandboxes full of living, breathing environments to explore and gives you the freedom to plan the ultimate assassination utilizing an assortment of tools, weapons, disguises and stealth techniques to creatively trigger your own unique chain of events.

Here are a few words from our CEO, Hakan Abrak:

“We are very proud to announce HITMAN 2 as the next exciting chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination. Building on the success of our previous game, HITMAN 2 introduces exciting new features, new modes, and franchise firsts to make for a larger and richer game.”

HITMAN 2 introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series for the first time, allowing two players to work together online to take down their targets. Sniper Assassin can also be enjoyed in a single player mode for those who want to play as Agent 47.

Sniper Assassin is available to play now as an early access bonus for anyone who preorders any edition of HITMAN 2.

That’s not all. Based on feedback from our passionate community, we’ve incorporated a number of new or improved features that greatly improve how it feels to play the game. Ranging from NPC vision and improved crowd fidelity to the fan-favourite briefcase and new items such as concussion gadgets.

We’ll be telling you more and more about HITMAN 2 as we move towards the release date on November 13, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

We couldn’t be more excited to finally share what we’ve been working on and share the first details with you all. For full information about HITMAN 2, head over to the newly redesigned hitman.com.
