IO-Interactive's Hitman

The Hitman video game franchise been up in the air in recent weeks, making longtime fans of the series very nervous. Square Enix, who published the last two main games in the series, 2012’s Hitman: Absolution and last year’s episodic release simply titled Hitman, and also developed mobile games for the series such as Hitman GO and Hitman: Sniper, decided that they were going to part ways with the creator and developer of the games, IO-Interactive.

Square Enix attempted to sell IO-Interactive, but instead IO was able to buy themselves back, making them an independent developer once again. We still don’t know exactly what the future holds for the Hitman franchise. But to kick off their return to independence, IO has decided to make the first location in their episodic game available to play for free.

You can read more about it and watch a video below.

Hitman Season Premiere Trailer

The latest entry in the Hitman video game series is changing things up a bit. Instead of releasing the entire game at once they’re going episodic this time around, releasing multiple parts of the game over the course of the year. They’ll also be releasing special contracts and challenges to take on each week.

The hope is that, in doing this, they can keep fans of the series busy and entertained for many months instead of them getting it and beating it in a matter of days or weeks and moving on to something else.

The start of this assassination journey arrives on March 11th when the first of these episodes will be released. In celebration of its arrival, a season premiere trailer has been released, which includes plenty of peeks and praise. You can check it out below.

Hitman Opening Cinematic

The opening cinematic for the upcoming reboot of the Hitman video game franchise has been released.

The video is titled “Legacy,” and it acts as a bridge. The game features a prologue mission that’s set in the earlier days of Agent 47 when he first came to join the ICA and first met longtime handler Diana Burnwood, and then the game picks up 20 years down the road at the Paris fashion show we’ve already seen in a gameplay demo. This opening cinematic quickly connects those two time periods, highlighting a few of 47’s notable targets during that time period.

You can check it out below.

Hitman IO-Interactive

Last week came the news that Hitman, the next game in the hit third-person assassin game series, was being pushed back from December of this year to March of next year. With that announcement came the promise of more release details sometime this week. As promised, those details have now been shared.

As a fan of the series, it’s impossible not to be excited about a new game. That said, my personal excitement has taken a bit of a hit by the plan to release only a portion of the game at first and then release the rest of it later down the road. With this new information we know much more about how that will play out, including what you’ll get in the initial launch, what you’ll get in the post-launch content releases, and also prices (as it turns out, there will be more than one price option). You read all of the information and see a new infographic below.
