Sounds like it could be an open world of sorts. I'm thinking something along the lines of The Darkness where you could travel from place to place via the subway, not a full-blown open world like GTA. Hitman has always consisted of small open levels. All they would have to do is come up with a way for you to travel back and forth like the subway or taxis.

The article kind of gives me that impression... The artwork of Chicago, the fact that it will be set entirely in the US, the way they call it a "significantly different experience from other Hitman games", and the way they talk about completely new features.

Not that I necessarily think that it will be open world, but the thought of it just popped into my head while reading those things.

Absolutely loved the previous games. But this was due to the formula it had enough to separate it from the Stealth genre and the shoot em ups too. It would be a shame if they changed that too much. "Movie tie in" just chills my spine because they are crap unless its goldeneye.
