Wow Square Enix (or IO Interactive), if this is true I have no idea how to react right now.

as long as the reboot hitman doesn't end up looking like an emo kid or suddenly has hair, I think I'm fine with it.

emo kid hitman....eewww!

"David Bateson again the voice of 47"

im sorry but this ^^ is the only good news on this list, atleast we get to keep 47's cool calm vocals if true.

The cover system bit makes me weary. I want to be able to go stealth just like old times. Strangling people then taking their clothes and go about my business.

If you played the new Splinter Cell, you'd understand why a cover system would work much better for games like these. They should allow you to take out people from any which way in ALL stealth based games.

So the more ways to kill the merrier, or at least that's how I see it.

Although I do have to say if that's how he looks, I'll be upset. He looks like he's 19 years old, wearing dads suit and fake stubble.

granted that taking out enemies from cover is a nice way to kill in stealth games I(remembers the first time playing Tenchu).

But I always viewed 47 as a blending in then killing target over a take cover behind a wall and do a stealth kill.

Maybe it's just me not letting go of that style but hey that's the benefit of an opinion right.

All in all I just hope 47 is just as talkative as he is in the reboot as he is in all of his original games.

It would no longer be Hitman if agent 47 isn't the same.

BornToKill3652d ago

let me guess he's gonna have hair.

dredgewalker3652d ago

Hitman with an afro would look groovy.

seann3652d ago (Edited 3652d ago )

a fat hitman would be awesome to.(just look at the ugly mess they made of max payne)

if this is related to the movie in anyway, then hitman is dead to me.

where's the "don't care"option on the rumor bar?

It's called not clicking the article and not taking the time to comment.
