IO Interactive to make a Hitman announcement on October 24

08 October 2017

It was unknown if the publisher planned to keep the IP or not, but after they didn't find a buyer, Square Enix chose to let IO Interactive keep Hitman, and the studio went independent. Things will be different this month though.

IO Interactive has announced today on their blog that this month will see a slew of new Hitman content hit the game.

"Mark this date on your calendars: October 24th".

IO Interactive has also announced that on October 13th it will present 10 new featured contracts and will release the Master Scarecrow Challenge Pack. According to the studio, they are not even going to give a hint as the announcement will speak for itself.

So what does that mean? No exact details were shared as to what this new content will be, however, the developer confirmed that it won't be the game's highly-anticipated second season.

"So, save the date, let's hope it doesn't leak and we'll see you there!". We won't know more about the big announcement for the game until the end of the month, but there's more coming in the interim. Look forward to 5 new challenges, each with a high amount of location mastery; a great way to top out your mastery and collect any remaining unlocks. Aside from elusive targets and small events, the last new piece of content, the Hokkaido level, was released on October 31, 2016. The latter will include five new challenges, the completion of which will unlock a new item for players to use in all locations.
