So we just finished the game (interesting ending by the way, we kinda got where we started) and the ending makes us think about the future Hitman game and his future adventures. This is without a doubt the best Hitman game yet and in my opinion the best game of 2012.
For all of you Hitman fans out there that are waiting for the next Hitman game you should know that it exists. A few weeks before Hitman 5 (Absolution) was released, the second book for the Hitman series has been released. As you can see in the picture, it says 'Official prequel to Hitman Absolution'. So the storyline already exists and if you love reading you might find out what's happening in the next game in advance by reading the book. Of course we love playing games so we will still wait to control Agent 47.
The book has been released on October 30th 2012 in North America and it will be released in other countries as well. Seems like the Hitman franchise is doing well. In the book the action takes place somewhere between Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman Absolution. Agent 47 will meet his old mentor, Father Vittorio. So if Hitman 6 will follow the storyline from the book we might have a Hitman 7 as well, which will clear out what happened after the ending in Absolution.
Release date? Well we might have to wait at least two more years until Hitman 6 but after waiting more than 6 years for Hitman Absolution i must say i'm impressed by the final result. Good job Square Enix!
igcent.com getting it right again!
Later Edit: Yes, we were once again right. Two days after the publishing of this article, Square Enix Montreal confirmed that they are already working on the game (Hitman 6) and posted two official concept arts. So these are the first official news about Hitman 6.
Here are the two official concept arts for Hitman 6:
I just hope they will not make it similar to Hitman Absolution and will be a brand new game. I hope they will not just copy most of Absolution since they started working on Hitman 6 so soon.
