The Next Hitman Game Won’t Be At E3 2014

IO Interactive has confirmed that the next Hitman game won’t be making an appearance at E3 2014.  To help quell the sadness, the team has released the first piece of concept art for the upcoming game.

“First up, we’ve seen a lot of people talking about what we might be bringing to E3 this year. We know the worst thing is to hope for something that doesn’t turn up; so we wanted to let you know that our next Hitman is going to be under wraps for a bit longer,” the company wrote on their website. “We’re focusing all of our time and efforts into creating the best possible Hitman game. That’s our number one priority and we don’t want to divert valuable resources to show something before it’s ready.”

Hitman Concept Art

As a teaser, we got a piece of concept art showing off the scale of the game.  “This location is set in Central Europe and you’ll be able to explore the entire building you see in the image, inside and out. For a sense of scale, the building on its own is larger than any location in Hitman Absolution.”

IO Interactive has confirmed that they will be releasing more news throughout the year about the project, and will only lift the lid when they feel it’s absolutely necessary.  While we may not see the game at E3 2014, Hitman may still make an appearance at Gamescom 2014 or another upcoming event.
