It might have a new publisher, a new release style (no more episodes!) and a snazzy new Flamingo Mascot suit, but the most notable take-away after playing a 40 minute demo of Hitman 2 is how much it feels like the last game. It seems like we’re getting a Season 2 in all but name - and that’s just great.
New content to complement the last game was always Io Interactive’s grand plan for this new incarnation of the legendary assassination simulator and, after a very tangible scare that there might not be any more Hitman at all, it’s a pleasant surprise to find new caretaker Warner Bros. is letting the Danish studio get its way.
