Nothing to tell from it. All I hope is for more suburb, bright, happy, and public places. Nothing makes you feel like a sneaky assassin like walking out when everyone is still just going about their everyday activities.

2 and Blood Money are the best in the series and some of the best stealth games ever. Hitman Contracts (err...3) is 'ok', and Hitman 1 is ambitious for the time but if you're new to the series, 2 and BM are the ways to go.

Ofcourse, this is just a concept art. However, why are his clothes gone?

This is what I call jumping the shark...

Really guys, it´s a teaser image, it´s not even in the category of "vague PR description" to be worth of jumping into conclusions. I really doubt IO is going to take Hitman and transform it on a shooter after all these years and having a developed series with it´s fanbase and all.

I have faith in IO to not fuck up this series. It's just gotten too good to fuck it up now.

The fire overtones may just be tied into the plot. I doubt IO's stupid enough to pull a RE5 Chris Redfield makeover.

I am hoping that is true, but what about the scar and the back of his head?

Comic-con reveal?

This is what I'm hoping for based on the concept art.

i would like to say that I intensley dislike this concept art and whatever it may stand for.
also; who gives a shit about plots in hitman games. you're a hitman who assassinates people in a variety of ways. all that clone bs has always been the worst part of the series.

They finally got rid of the stupid bar code behind the head.

Jesper Kyd did such an amazing job with the soundtracks.

In my ideal world Hitman is marketed to look more like Don Draper than John McClane.

Good point. The good clean kills were always made when nobody even saw your face. Like wiring a barbecue and watching from the treehouse!

edit: calling it now, there's going to be a fire in this game. Somewhere.

I had no idea there was a Shadow Man sequel.

And it looks like Hitman is in hell or something. Maybe you assassinate Satan in the last level.

love the franchise, but ugh, that doesn't look promising

I was hoping for hitman 5 to stop with agent 47's backstory, and concentrate solely on awesome mission that aren't connected (although blood money's real last mission was fuck awesome)

Exactly, and generic scar isnt even half as good as a barcode tattoo.

Also, why change the character when he doesnt even need to change! Nobody in the fanbase even asked for this did they? No they didnt. Which leads me to believe IO has taken some freedoms with the Hitman formula.. Ofcourse all just guesses from me..

This is not related to the game :P

“Unfortunately, the concept art was created as part of a portfolio,” IO Interactive PR manager Tom Stratton told us. “[It was] intended to showcase an artist’s style or method of work and does not represent any new Hitman game.”

They already did that, it was callled Hitman: Contracts. Thankfully they realised their mistake and gave us Blood Money next.

Sorry for bumping this but the other thread was locked..

Like I said I sent an email to IOI asking and stating that they really couldn't change the franchise all that much..

Hi



Given that the information you are referencing is a fake rumor started by unknown persons, we really cannot comment on this in any effective way. Rest assured that we’re not going to damage the Hitman games by doing something the fans won’t like.



Thanks
