We’re quickly approaching 5 years since the last Hitman game started stocking retail shelves, and fans of the series are starting to get a bit antsy. News like what we have today likely doesn’t help, because just like most of what we’ve seen and heard so far, it’s just rumour and speculation.
The one thing we do know is that a new Hitman game is very real and will likely be announced soon. And thanks to a trademark filing by Square Enix Europe, we may also know what it will be called. ‘Hitman: Absolution’ is the name in question and unless there are multiple Hitman games in the works (which seems unlikely), this may very well be what the fifth installment will be called. It especially makes sense if you think about the titles of the previous Hitman games. Only one of them has used a ‘number’ in the title up to now.
Just a rumour for the time being but it certainly seems plausible.
