Hitman: Absolution Debuts at E3 2011

Nick Price's Avatar + Posted by Nick Price on Jun 08, 2011 // Studio Communications Manager, IO Interactive

At this very moment, an army of hard-working team members are into the second day of presenting what is a true labor of love for IO InteractiveHitman: Absolution. The knowledge that millions of fans have been waiting for news on Hitman is making the guys give it everything they have to present a game that we’re extremely proud of at IO. Lifting the veil on the development of a new game is always fun but given the connection between the studio and Hitman, this time it’s more exciting than ever.

And the debut trailer? Well, see for yourself. Agent 47, the world’s deadliest assassin, returns to take on his most dangerous contract ever. This time, he finds himself betrayed by the people he trusted and must use every skill and talent he has available to claw his way out of a dark conspiracy, which takes him through a corrupt world of twisted enemies. Thankfully, 47 is a resourceful individual and nothing will stand in his way for long.

When you’re creating a game with the scope of Hitman: Absolution, you don’t just have one finish line at the end of the race – you have lots. In fact, it can sometimes feel like you’re running a relay race all by yourself, constantly handing over and simultaneously receiving the baton to go another lap around the track. It’s exhausting, sure, but every time you complete a lap, a new surge of energy hits and you can run on that high for a long time.

Hitman: Absolution for PS3

Coming to E3 and delivering this debut trailer for Hitman: Absolution, as well as the presentations on the floor, has provided us with a massive boost of energy, which will come in handy for the next months as we push to make the game the absolutely best it can be. IO and Hitman are intertwined on an almost cellular level and with this game, we’re taking everything to the next level. We trust you will all enjoy the experience.

#12: I too hope they dont make it ‘accessible’. I really loved spenting hours working out the perfect way to complete the mission. But you just know that is gonna be move compatible or something like that which will ruin it, *cough**cough* DO NOT put PS Move in this game!

Hitman Games HD remake along side with New Hitman

I think if community will support this. Both of us going to be happy. Even Square Enix could tweak the controls with IO interactive… A little challenge never been bad thing, but a way to perfection…

Someone bring it to PS Share I can’t post ideas for some freaking reason…

Day 1 purchase for sure for new Hitman…

Oh my god.

“I’m a trained killer, and the people I work for have betrayed me and now I’m gonna get even.”

Really? Clearly this should be the winner the most original story of the year.

Way to wait 6 years…they should make this better and longer than all the others..
What would be nice to see is the original Hitman make its way to a console..

@62 That doesn’t sound original at all. Someone betraying you and you get revenge = not new. You betraying them and they get revenge on you.. thats better :D

PLEEEEEEAAASE! PLEEEEEEEAASE TELL ME IF THERE IS AN HD REMAKE OF Hitman 2, Hitman 3, and Hitman Blood Money!!
You dont even HAVE to tell me if you’re keeping it a secret. Maybe just a hint. I WOULD PAY TOP DOLLAR FOR IT!!
It would sit right next to the MGS HD collection i’ll be getting.

wow….Ive been doubting sony up 2 this point but they have finally answered my whines about a new hitman….Im wit yall who agree 4 a hd collection on all the old ones 2… really thank you Nick and Sony….whats up with square enix jumping on the bandwagon though? I hope they dont “Bandai up” our hitman on some poweranger [DELETED] I already seen what happened when they did that collaboration on soul calibur….”Bandai + Namco” they add some cornball stuff to pull in the younger generation it just ruins the classic feel….. just dont forget who this game is really 4 aight!!!!!

@76 olololol

At the end of blood money *Spoiler alert* Diana gives 47 his hardballers when at his funeral and he then gets up and leaves no survivors. Afterwards a cinematic shows 47 getting a hotel room and red curtains are drawn across the screen ending the game.
