IO Interactive, home of games like Freedom Fighters, Kane & Lynch, and Hitman, has announced the newest game in the Hitman franchise: Hitman Absolution. IO Interactive game director Tore Blystad had this to say in the press release:
"For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy. This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world."
IO will be show casing their new propriety technology, called Glacier 2 and was built from the ground up for the game. Square Enix and IO Interactive will be show casing the new game at this year’s E3.
