A new Hitman title set for release later this year has been unveiled by Io-Interactive.

The new title will launch on December 8th and will allow players complete freedom of approach including where to go, when to strike, and who to strike.

“This is a true Hitman fantasy, a highly challenging, thinking person’s game where creativity is rewarded,” said Christian Elverdam, Creative Director, Io-Interactive.

“You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.”

It will also feature high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world including Paris, Italy and Marrakesh.

“This is new ground for Hitman, coming out digital first enables us to do something new, bold and exciting,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive.

“We are building a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination where we continuously develop the game, listening closely to the players as we release new locations, missions and hits as soon as they are ready – where $60 and not a dollar more gets you full access to the experience.”

“This game marks a new direction for the studio,” continued Seifert. “With Hitman, we are not only embracing our core fans in a new way by bringing them closer to the development than ever before but we are also laying the foundation for a very exciting future by embracing what a live environment can offer a title like this.

Hitman is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
