IO Interactive has formally unveiled Hitman 2, and it’s heading to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 13th.
Hitman 2 is a a direct sequel to the developer’s 2016 Hitman game, and its story picks up directly where its predecessor left off, closing in on the mysterious Shadow Client. IO notes that Hitman 2 will launch as a complete story, ditching the episodic structure seen in 2016, but will also offer “tonnes and tons of post-launch content” – including the likes of new Escalation Contracts and Elusive Targets.
As is now tradition, Agent 47’s latest adventure will take him all across the world (from “sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests”, says IO), with the developer showcasing a brand-new location as part of its announcement video. Hitman 2 includes a contract set across glorious sun-bleached Miami, which unfurls on the final day of the Global Innovation Race, with thousand of fans gathered to enjoy the show.
