So, what’s going on with Hitman?

After the release of Hitman: Absolution – a game thatfailed to meet Square Enix’s lofty sales expectations- and layoffs at developer IO Interactive, the future of Agent 47 was cloudy at best.

Now, though, after a developer LinkedIn profile spotted byVideoGamer.comrevealed one big-budget game in the series had been cancelled before it had even been announced, Square Enix has confirmed that IO Interactive is hard at work on a next generation Hitman game.

“There’s a bit of confusion around the Hitman projects currently in development at Square Enix owned studios and so we wanted to take the time to clarify what each studio is working on to clear up some of this confusion,” a Square Enix spokesperson told Eurogamer.

“IO Interactive is developing a new, AAA Hitman game that will be coming to PC and next-gen consoles.”
