Developer IO Interactive officially announced the sequel to Hitman, Hitman 2, today. The game is currently scheduled to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC on November 13, 2018. The game will reportedly continue Agent 47’s storyline as indicated by an announcement trailer for the game.
Hitman 2’s story centers on a mission to “eliminated the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia.” However, “when 47 learns his target’s true identity and the truth about his past, everything changes.” If the voice actor from the announcement sounds familiar, that’s because it’s courtesy of the one and only Sean Bean.

There will be six new locations to look forward to in Hitman 2 including “sun-drenched streets” and “dark and dangerous rainforests.” There will also be new gameplay elements, new game modes, and new features.
