Translation of some of the features in the game:

Complete reboot of the series and Agent 47
Agent 47's got beard! (WTF?!)
Heavy focus on story
47's "assignments" are more open mission just like in the previous titles
The game features more linear missions when 47 isn't on an assignment, with focus on guns and cover
The game is being developed along with the second Hitman-movie
You get to play as other killers, not only 47. One of the assassins is a woman.
David Bateson is lending out his voice as 47 yet again" 

 
Kinda reminds me of the DmC reboot (especially the character design) 
 
Beard = edgy

Eww they're making another Hitman movie. The first wasn't good.

Another reboot huh? Seeing a shit ton of those but I sort of guess why. To be honest I'm quite conflicted on this really considering how the last few Hitman games did. Interesting either way though since it's breaking off  the usual formula.

#11 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

This will probably take the same route that the Splinter Cell franchise went. More based on action and shooting than sneaking / different approaches to missions. Let's hope not.

Yeah the usual formula is not popamole cover TPS or generic FPS. Way too many Hitman like game out there like... Oh wait.

47 looks like he could go for a 6 pack of PBR.

#17 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

He looks young.

#18 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5806 posts) -

This is not news. They announced a Hitman 5 earlier this year I think.

They probably did it for the new set of gamers who don't like challenge in their games.
#20 Posted by Th3_James (2576 posts) -

Can we please kill Jimmy Fallon in a mission. Just think about how epic of a mission it would be to go to a talk show taping and then kill the host.  
 
I just thought about this now, I think it would be a really cool mission. (Doesn't have to be Jimmy Fallon, Oprah, or Dr. Phil would also be acceptable) 
 
I would also love if they put hidden missions for the Lincoln assassination, and JFK assassination. ( I know it's in bad taste, but I think it would be cool )

#23 Posted by Meltac (1999 posts) -

Well, if it's challenging, has a good story, great gameplay, interesting missions.. then I'm looking forward to it, but until I get any proof of that, I'll remain skeptic.

Im not that knowledgable on the hitman series, but I loved blood money. 
However this seems like a step in the wrong direction. Specifically the parts where it said 
 'there are other assassins to play as" and focus on "guns and cover". 
I liked the Hitman games because there was so many different ways to play them, and some(if not most)  you were not required to use guns!  
Hopefully they pull it off though :)

 Is that supposed to be Agent 47? If it is I can't say I like it, I Am used to the scowled killer.  Plus his head looks weird :P

The new 47... ehh...
 
Weirdly though, I read somewhere that Jason Statham had been considered for the role of Agent 47 in a second Hitman film. The new 47 looks a little similar to him. If the idea of a cover system is implemented, I do think that the series might cease to be based around stealth. It might become all-action, much like the film was. That might be a good thing for some players, but it's not so good for those who loved the Hitman franchise for how it was. As for a series reboot, it could be said that there was something of a reboot in Contracts, seeing as it changed events shown in Hitman: Codename 47. If there was one change I'd make it would be to Agent 47's past. I preferred the past shown in the movie, where he was an orphan, and not a clone. That's a minor aspect though. 
 
One observation: the concept art appears to be showing a USP pistol (possibly the .40 seeing as the SLP .40 in Blood Money was very similar). Agent 47's artwork always showed an AMT Hardballer when he was carrying a handgun, so it might actually be a complete series reboot.

Fuck.

Oh, and weren't the horrible Kane & Lynch cover-based shooters developed by IO Interactive?

Fucking double fuck.

In other words, it's only gonna be a Hitman game in name only since that sounds like the complete opposite of the previous Hitman games (where shooting it out with guns is generally a BAD thing).

Not really... At least that still looks more or less like 47.

It only says when he's not on assignment making it sound like there's a balance between the old school stuff and this new stuff. Though, saying focus on guns and cover just makes me think it's going to have a Kane & Lynch crossover.

It will be the splinter cell conviction of the hitman series. 
 
if so, I will be fucking pissed off

bingo, that's exactly what they mean, they are probally going to implement kayne and lynch's cover system and mediocre gameplay for certain segments of the gameplay.

Just what I want from a Hitman game.

Hope this doesn't suggest that it's being developed alongside it (i.e. that it's a tie-in game)

Exactly, even if they ruin half of the game it is still ruined.

Everything about this seems god-awful. The only thing that could make it worse is if they announce a new Hitman movie to tie-in with...OH SWEET JESUS
