""Hitman is 15 years old," IO Interactive head Hannes Seifert said. "That's a long time. Tastes change. It's time to get back to Hitman." That was Seifert's explanation for why the next game in the series has forgone a subtitle. However, it may as well have served as the mission statement for how the studio plans to develop Hitman.
In our hands-off demo, it was apparent that IO Interactive wanted to accomplish two major goals. One of those was to construct intricate and interesting levels. The other, which piggybacks off the first and is more integral, is that the developer is really taking strides to give the player options."
