Sometimes a developer has to be prepared to take a risk to revive a flagging franchise. That is exactly what IO Interactive did with the Hitman Franchise. This years trip into the shoes of Agent 47 was made into an episodic one and that was certainly a risk for the developer, but it was a risk that certainly paid off. Fresh life most certainly has been breathed into the Hitman series. Following on from the success of the first season the developer have confirmed in an interview that a second season is currently been worked on. Details are a little … Read More »

Although Season Two hasn’t been confirmed … Read More »

Playing as an assassin is a dime a dozen these days; everyone wants to play as a hired killer with only the next target on your agenda. But let’s be honest; nobody is as badass or as graceful a killing machine as the original assassin himself, Agent 47. This Hitman – a reboot of sorts for the franchise – starts off at the beginning of Agent 47’s career where he first meets his long time handler Diana, and starts on his path as the number one gun for hire. This feels like the right move for the next chapter in Hitman; with the franchise … Read More »

Much was made about Hitman before it released in March after being delayed from December.

Hitman’s first episode in an open world Paris received an excellent 9 out of 10 from us here. Now we’re looking forward to episode 2, after seeing these brand new screenshots … Read More »
