- "Think Deadly."
- ―HITMAN™ 2's Tagline
|This article is about the 2018 reboot. For original 2002 release, see Hitman 2: Silent Assassin.|
HITMAN™ 2 is the 7th latest installment to the Hitman video game series. Scheduled to release on November 13th, 2018. This is the first entry to the franchise after Io-Interactive acquired the rights to Hitman from Japanese publisher Square Enix.
Unlike 2016's HITMAN™, the game will not release episodically; instead opting to use a more traditional launch method, with various game add-ons and DLC expected after the initial release.
In HITMAN 2™, players will once again take control of Agent 47 in order to fulfill assassination missions. For the first time however, players will be able to complete these contracts either solo or with others via online co-op, a shift from the standard single-player experience. Missions take place in dynamic locations across the globe, where players can utilize the sandbox nature of the maps to their advantage in order to achieve their goal in any way they see fit. From an assortment of weapons, environmental hazards, distractions and tactics, creative use of the world is at your disposal, along with the return of opportunities and hints from the previous game which aid players into seeing some of the more spectacular assassination methods.
Note: While the general plot of HITMAN 2™ follows a distinct path, many elements such as the assassination methods and character interactions are subject to the player's decisions. The game offers several events and methods to targets, along with multiple decisions based on the sandbox gameplay. This story synopsis concentrates on the main plot thread of the game the player would generally encounter on their first time playing.
The plot follows on from the events of HITMAN™ though further details are yet to be announced.
