A logo for Hitman 2 appeared on the Warner Bros. website, and was quickly pulled offline, indicating a sequel to 2016’s Hitman.
A couple of tweets from the official Hitman account and the Warner Bros. Games account went out just before the logo appeared:
Then a tweet from Warner Bros. indicated when we would hear more, with an announcement due at 6pm on Thursday, 7th June.
In April, IO Interactive signed a publishing deal with Warner Bros. The partnership saw Hitman: Definitive Edition hit shelves in May.
It came about when previous publisher Square Enix dropped IO Interactive last year. There was no ill will during the process, with IO allowed to retain the rights to the Hitman IP and continue on to whatever was next.
Now, it looks as it what’s next is Hitman 2. It will be interesting to see if the game is released episodically as the 2016’s was. It was an approach that irritated some die-hard fans, but did wonders for encouraging repeat play-throughs of the game’s sprawling levels.
