Silent but deadly – Hitman season 2 quietly confirmed

Hitman developer Io Interactive has confirmed that a second season of episodic murder is on the way.

In an interview between French site Gamergen and Io producer Hakan Abrak, it was revealed that Hitman will retain the same launcher, which will deliver the new season’s content. Io Interactive is looking to build upon the existing tech, and content, with the second season, rather than start from scratch.

Elusive Targets and Escalation missions will still appear on earlier maps, and unlocked content will carry through from season 1.


Io has previously talked about its desire to make a great deal more content for Hitman. The game’s transition to an episodic system has worked well, with fresh content delivered on a regular basis and a series of ‘live events’ in which targets must be assassinated before a real-world timer counts down to zero. It’s been a surprising critical success, and one which we also lauded in our roundup review of the game’s first season. We don’t give out five stars for nothing.

A time scale for delivery hasn’t been provided, but given the game’s episodic nature, we wouldn’t expect Agent 47 to be gone for very long.
