Hitman 2 has been officially announced, launching 2018

Posted on June 8, 2018

WB Games have uploaded a new trailer that officially announces Hitman 2. The game is the second in the rebooted franchise with the original initially releasing early 2016 with additional content releasing further down the line. Fans of the Hitman series will also be very excited to know that the sequel will be releasing November of this year. Check out the trailer below.

We don’t know too much about Hitman 2 at this point although the recently created Steam page points to some interesting facts.

“Travel the globe and track your targets across exotic sandbox locations in HITMAN 2. From sun-drenched streets to dark and dangerous rainforests, nowhere is safe from the world’s most creative assassin, Agent 47.”

“Prepare to experience the ultimate spy thriller story; your mission is to eliminate the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia, but when 47 learns his target’s true identity and the truth about his past, it changes everything.”

“HITMAN 2 introduces new ways to play, new game modes and new features, including the new Sniper Assassin mode with franchise first co-op play.”

The game, unlike its predecessor, doesn’t appear to be episodic. Whilst the 2016 Hitman may have been much loved, the episodic format divided the player base quite a bit. Rather than an episodic format it appears as though the developers will stick to a more traditional expansion set up.

Are you excited for the return of Agent 47?
