A new documentary looking at the fall and rise of the Hitman franchise, the cunningly titled “The Fall & Rise of Hitman” has revealed that to the surprise of no one, there’s a third Hitman game in production.
The company have opened a new studio and are working on Hitman 3, which may return to an episodic release schedule, and a second title which is a brand new IP. You can hear the reveal in the video below at around the 36m18s mark.
It appears the rather unceremonious split from Square Enix has done wonders for the company, before the split the original 2016 game had 1.8 million players, after IO took back control this almost 5.9 million players.
