After months of speculation as to its existence, both IO Interactive and Square Enix finally got around to confirming that they were indeed working on the upcoming Hitman: Absolution game at the beginning of May. Images surfaced a few days later, showing what appeared to be the final box art.
We now have even more good news for you, as according to a recent article over at thegamingliberty.com, the very first Hitman: Absolution (Hitman 5) screenshots have recently been leaked online. There may only be two of them, but I’m sure they will be enough to whet the appetite of Hitman fans.
One of the screenshots appears to show Agent 47 – the series protagonist – dressed in a police disguise, while the other screen shows him watching another group of police. As the article notes, the screens appear to suggest that HItman: Absolution could feature some sort of free-climbing mechanism.
The HItman: Absolution game – which is due to be unveiled properly at the E3 2011 event in Los Angeles – will be set in the United States, with one section of the game taking place in Chicago. The game will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and will arrive in stores sometime in 2012.
