Ever since the first sneak peek screenshot for the much-anticipated Hitman 5 game was discovered back in March this year, fans of the series have been desperately waiting to hear more information. Well it looks like they are now in luck, as the Hitman 5 game has just been confirmed.
According to a recent article by Pete Davison over at gamepro.com, both the developer IO Interactive and the publisher Square Enix have recently confirmed the upcoming fifth installment, which is titled Hitman: Absolution. The publisher has also provided fans with a teaser trailer for the new game.
The Hitman: Absolution game once again places players in the shoes of Agent 47, who will find himself at the center of a dark conspiracy. According to the game’s director Tore Blystad, the new title promises to take Agent 47 on a personal journey that will enable players to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy.
As Davison notes, the newly released teaser trailer also shows a barcode that reads ‘110706040147,’ with the 47 part highlighted. The number 47 is obviously a reference to the game’s protagonist Agent 47, but what about the rest of the numbers? This could be a hint about the E3 event.
June 17th, 2011 (11/07/06) just happens to be the opening day of the E3 event, and Square Enix has previously mentioned that the Hitman 5 game would be showcased by invitation only at this’ year’s E3. What are your thoughts on the new teaser trailer?
