IO Interactive might be winding down development on Hitman 2 this month, but that doesn’t mean the end for its surly assassin; the studio has confirmed that work on its next Hitman game, whatever that might ultimately prove to be, is “well underway”.
All this comes via IO’s latest blogpost, in which the developer outlined its November content roadmap for Hitman 2. There’s a lot going, but perhaps the most significant news is that this month’s update, which arrives on the 19th November and marks one year since Hitman 2’s release, will be the game’s “final major patch”.
That, explains IO, is because “after 13 months of full-time support and content for Hitman 2 – at no additional cost (besides what we added through the Expansion Pass), we’re now at a place where we are looking increasingly to the future. In real terms, we’re moving more and more of the Hitman 2 team to join the next Hitman game, which is well underway.”
