Hitman 2 Announced

Posted on 08 Jun 2018

As a follow-up to the episodic Hitman game, Hitman 2 will continue Agent 47’s story of murdering people and making it look like an accident (or like a mass shooting if you’re anything like us). As usual you’ll be trotting all over the world in large sandbox locations to infiltrate and ultimately assassinate 47’s target. You can see one of the new locations, a motorsport event in Miami, in the trailer above and the press release below also mentions a “dark and dangerous rainforest”.

Additionally, we already have a release date: 13 November 2018.
