Forums - Gaming Discussion - Hitman 2 announced, releasing November 13th, 2018 (full game, non-episodic)

I loved the first one so this is a definite buy at some point. But at this point i have to wonder how many games there are left for E3

I hope they can get this series back on track.

Hitman 2016 was awesome tho

The game would have been great if they didn't go for the episodic approach as that hurt its reception tbh, games like Assassin's Creed are essentially doing what this series invented in its concept the is a tonne of untapped potential and type of missions they could come up with.

fair enough.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Didn't the last episode of Hitman 1 release in October 2016? A Holiday 2018 release for a full Hitman game feels like a really fast turnover with just 2 years of development, hopefully it's not rushed.

Not surprising. They probably took note of the underwhelming sales cutting it up and serving it in pieces got for the last game, and so they're deciding to serve it all in one piece from the get go.

I highly doubt IO wanted to do things they way they were done with Hitman 2016 to begin with. The western arm of Square/Enix is notorious for doing naught but forcing it's stupid ideas into games they publish.

This is a decent, fairly short read from......last May? Holy moly time flies: https://www.vg247.com/2017/05/11/hitmans-fate-proves-theres-no-bloody-justice-in-the-world/

I heard great things about the first one, it's good they dropped the whole episodic thing, maybe I'll pick it up.



I make game analyses on youtube:

Shadow of the Colossus: https://youtu.be/9kDBFGw6SXQ

Braid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7tZiowT_qM

Is this a remake? There is many Hitman games released over the years including one with the name Hitman 2.

I think this franchise is overdue.



good one



In addition to the brand new levels for Hitman 2, the game will also include all Hitman 1 levels updated with the new mechanics of the Hitman 2.
