Where's Hitman?

#1 Posted by SmugDarkLoser (4619 posts) -

This used to be a almost yearly franchise (little less). However, it's been quite a while since the last game, which was Blood Money.  That game was freaking awesome.  That being said, despite being so, it did felt like one of those upgraded to next gen ports.    There's nothing wrong with that I guess, but a truly next gen hitman could be awesome.

It was announced.  But where is it?  Or are they trying to revamp the series a bit, kind of like Splinter Cell (which I use to love, but it became the same game, over and over).

I don't know but I am eagerly awaiting its return.

yeah, having a hitman game on the current consoles would be petty awesome if you think about it

Right here? Wait you meant the game, I don't know then because there has been no announcements yet. Everyone else from other sites calls me hitman.

I spent so much time on Blood Money.

I did too. I have an S rank for the achievements to prove it.

I agree.  I've always thought their quality could be (and should be) so much higher, so maybe the wait will be worth it.

It would be nice to see a new Hitman! Who owns the rights? Maybe that's why we haven't seen one....

 I think the creators are concentrating on the "Kayne and Lynch" franchise right now.

I'd have to assume eidos

I think having a new Hitman would be sick.


Still, I think some new minds on the development team couldn't hurt, as long as they keep the same dark humor. The game-play was starting to get a little stale by the end of BM

It's not really dark humor.  Well, some, like hitman dressing up as a clown, but i've known it from the cross between religion and this crazy assassin part.  The hitman theme is freaking awesome

Ahhh true. Well maybe with SE taking over Eidos...we will soon see some news regarding perhaps a new Hitman.

I dunno, the rehab (I think, it's been a while) level from BM was pretty hilarious I thought, as was the level in the suburbs. There are a lot of little touches that made me laugh (in a dark way?)

But yeah I agree I loved Hitman's theme and atmosphere, just think that the formula could use an update, though not a complete overhaul
#15 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3504 posts) -

Personally, I like the dark atmosphere of Hitman: Contracts the best.  I felt like Blood Money gave you the most options for paths/methods of completion.  It was way too easy though, and had some wacky inventory decisions (I can only bring one pistol?...).  Hopefully they pay attention to some of the suggestion in their forum because there's some good ones there.

I love that series, hopefully hear something at E3.... although absolutely nothing as of yet so I guess a trailer is all we can hope for.

Guys... Right here.

The Hitman series needs a massive overhaul. Kinda like Splinter Cell has with Conviction.

Was there? I thought they killed the series after Blood Money. I would like another Hitman game though. Please?

The announced ETA of the next Hitman title is the end of 2010, according to a Destructoid article.

I loved blood money i got silent assassin's and every mission but the last.I got hitman there. Of coarse most of it was replying and finding out the best way to assassinsnate the target(s)

#25 Posted by pirate_neal (20 posts) -

Im a big fan of the series (have no idea why) and really look forward to a full next gen hitman game. I really did not enjoy blood money though, i think it might of been the spliter cell camera controls...idk 
 
any body agree with me and think the first one was the best?
