Come on announce a PROPER Hitman game, not like that horrible creation that was Absolution, yeah I know some of you liked it, I didn't, it was pointless using disguises because they didn't disguise you, you was forced to use cover, all the time

It did have it moments, my main complaint is the gameplay mechanics, and the soundtrack was terrible, bring back Jesper Kyd

I beat the game on the hardest setting, and that was too easy, platinum trophy in pretty much one playthrough (had to go back and find some collectibles and do some challenges)

So true.
Although the disguises should arouse some suspicion.
I want blood money 2 with better graphics ;)

Hitman: Abomination

Sadly, my Splinter Cell has also become a brain dead title. WHY ARE THEY KILLING ALL OF MY STEALTH GAMES!?

I tried to like it but the whole pulling a sniper out of your pocket thing got to me....and the ending seemed like they just didnt care anymore

I love Absolution, so I don't know why people are hating on this game so much. Its the hitman game we all know and love since the previous games. Yes my favorite Hitman is part 2. I have been a long time fan of the series. I would love to hear an announce to Hitman and Deus EX for next gen.

"ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels"

Now that sounds like a Hitman game to me

hell yes brother.
This is the exact thing I feel, absolution was bad and it seems that even they know it.
Just read that letter and it is obvious.
Such a joke for a Hitman game

Amen to that, what a disappointing sequel to ever brilliant Blood Money. All IO had to do was to step up their gameplay from there and actually just as engaging story like BM did. Absolution had NONE of that!

Mobile Game. Calling it right now.

A mobile game was already announced last year.

Blood Money 2 or bust.

Devs are just as bad PR guys these days...
All blah blah hype talk

He's gonna be in the new Shaq Fu game.
Eonjay  +   593d ago
Was this game "killed" just to build anticipation for the new one LOL. Either way I can't wait to see.
SolidGear3  +   592d ago
I want Kane & Lynch 3!
RE_L_MAYER  +   592d ago
idk man,its ok I guess but I dont think they should make any more
ExitToExisT  +   592d ago
There should be a third one to finish the story.
Nunchez  +   592d ago
Really really hope it isn't a freaking mobile game.
Zefros  +   592d ago
I want a game like hitman 2, travel around and locate your targets.
jay2  +   592d ago
The next gen version, bring it on.

The open letter in question.

Why did someone gave you a disagree? You gave us a link that's a good read to Hitman fans, and yes fans the developers hear your complaint about Absolution. They are making all the levels non linear! Yup they are taking inspiration from Blood Money and Contract. I can't wait for this game! And for the guy that disagree, your missing out on a great game.
ExitToExisT  +   592d ago
i gave the disagree before he changed his comment to this. at first he said he thinks it was a mobile game:)
iceman1346  +   592d ago

Gamers, the letter is up and the news sounds good for those of us who want Hitman to return to it's roots.

Noteworthy quote from their open letter regarding the next gen Hitman game:

"...we’re packing in an extreme level of detail on the largest levels we have ever built for a Hitman game. We’ve adopted an open, non-linear level design approach to the game, ensuring the game will play out across huge, checkpoint-free, sandbox levels."

I want the -peeping- map back. It was the half of what hitman as a game about.
