The very popular stealth game franchise Hitman has taken a new direction with its last installment, when it decided to release the game over the course of six episodes, each with its own interesting flavor, instead of doing things the traditional way in which customers get the entire game upfront.
It appears that this new method of delivering content has worked for Hitman and its developer, as in a recent interview for French gaming website Gamergen, Hakan Abrak, who serves as production director, confirmed that there will be a second season for Hitman.
Back in August, the game’s developer, Io Interactive has announced that a continuation for the game will happen only as long as the first season will be successful, meaning that if the game did well, we would get another two seasons worth of assassinations. Since the production director was confident in saying that season two is happening, it must mean that the first season met or even surpassed expectations.
Although in previous Hitman games, everyone meets their demise except for Diana, which is Agent 47’s handler, Io Interactive stated that with the new Hitman installment, they are taking a “ TV show” approach, meaning that not everyone dies in the end, as we saw at the end of season one, and that characters will continue to grow and have an impact on the overall story, with each of them lasting as much as needed, just like in a TV series.
As for season two, it seems that we will be able to visit some locations previously explored in season one, such as Paris, with a twist however, while also enjoying the brand new locations coming to the second season. The main goal with Hitman is to create a world where players can feel connected to what’s around them.
