Kane & Lynch Easter Egg in Hitman: Blood Money

I was just playing Hitman: Blood Money on my computer and noticed a reference to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men

It's been a long time since I've played the game, but I never noticed this in the 360 version. This is my first time playing Blood Money on my computer, so I wonder if the newspaper clippings are different for the PC version. Hmmmm... Anyways, I enjoy seeing references in games that I recognize and I wanted to share this one with my fellow Giant Bombers. If you know of any others in the game, feel free to share.

Ha. That's pretty nifty. Never planned to head back into Blood Money so never would of picked up on it.

Ah, okay. I probably didn't pick up on it because I only read the newspapers my first time through the game on 360 and Kane & Lynch wasn't even released yet.

Weird. Now, if only they'd do some kind of a crossover.

@Origina1Penguin: I think I remember some other ones later on in the game so look out for those too.

Presumably with 47 killing both of them.

Very nice catch.  I finished Kane and Lynch a week or so ago, and Hitman is my favorite series that I always return to in between games to pick away at the the s-rank.  Trying to stretch it out until the next HItman, but I'm getting a little impatient.  Fingers crossed.

Hah, nice catch indeed! That is pretty cool. I remember reading that, but I didn't make the connection at the time. Man, Blood Money is such a great game. 
Sort of strange how Kane and Lynch turned out. I hope IO Interactive makes a triumphant return to form with a new Hitman game soon!

@Manburger: I know, it's been so long since a Hitman game came out. I've played Blood Money into the ground waiting on a new one. I also really hope they read the suggestions on the official forum. There are some great ideas in there. I even posted some stuff a few years ago.

Nice find.  Currently playing through this on the 360.

Just saw this a few hours ago. Playing on the PC. Check out the RebelFM game club podcasts on it.
