HITMAN 2 Coming November 13th; Standalone Co-op ‘Sniper Assassin’ Mode Available Now

We've known a new Hitman game was coming for a while now, and it's great to see the series live on following IO Interactive's split with Square Enix. Hitman 2 will launch on November 13, 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

While the first setting has been revealed as Miami, Florida, IO Interactive has promised "a mix of bustling worldwide locations, "from sun-drenched streets to dark and risky rainforests".

The gameplay will once again consist of players venturing to exotic locations in an attempt to assassinate a high-value target. It showcases just how many there ways to take out targets' in the Hitman series' inventive sandbox-style levels.

"Full game" could be interpreted to mean many different things, but it could be mean that Hitman 2 will be released as a full package rather than piece-by-piece.

Jordan Oloman is a Freelance Writer for IGN who always wonders how much Agent 47 would cost if you scanned his barcode at the supermarket. There are plans for post-launch content, however.

IO Interactive is an independent videogame developer based in Copenhagen, Denmark and the creative force behind some of the most talked-about multiplatform videogames to emerge in the last decade. Interactive Entertainment revealed the game during a pre-E3 stream on its site. This game will be published by Warner Bros.

We mentioned nearly this time previous year that IO Interactive had managed to retain the rights to the Hitman franchise, after severing ties with publisher Square Enix. The Hitman 2 Standard Edition is available for pre-order now. Players who pre-order now will get an additional mode they can play starting today that allows them to hunt targets from a distance with friends. We will get a deeper look into Agent 47's past and those he trusts, which is something the previous games haven't delved into.

Are you a Hitman fan, excited for a new installment, or were you put off by the reboot?
