Hitman 2 is it’s a much-appreciated game that was released in 2018. TO this day, the game still receives a fair amount of updates regularly. The gameplay was the factor that determined so many people to declare themselves fans of Hitman 2, due to features like being able to approach a target in multiple ways.
The latest Hitman 2 update was recently launched, and the developer, IO Interactive, revealed in a blog post that the team is transitioning its focus on the next Hitman game. After working on releasing updates for Hitman 2 for 13 months, the studio said it’s “looking increasingly to the future.”
Although the developers chose not to divulge any more details, we can assume that the next Hitman title will involve the protagonist we know and love, Agent 47.
Hitman 2 will still receive some significant updates this month, and IO Interactive has already revealed some details about them. The next update rolls out on 14 November, but the 19 November Update will bring even more improvements to Hitman 2. Even more, content launches for Hitman 2 are scheduled for December and beyond.
In addition, IO Interactive revealed: “Our 2020 plans for HITMAN 2 live content will focus on continuing to add Featured Contracts as well as introduce Community-curated Contracts into the game. On top of that, we are also planning a re-activation of HITMAN 2 Elusive Targets, giving players another chance to earn any attached rewards and experience the Elusive Target missions that you might have missed the first time around.”
The best part about the content updates is that they are completely free. IO Interactive is a developer studio previously owned by Square Enix. After 2017, the studio became independent and managed to keep the Hitman IP. In the present, IO Interactive is working with Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment on the Hitman franchise and a “new universe” that we will hopefully get to find out more about soon.
