Hitman 2 Reveal: What to Expect, When to Expect it, & Why

Despite the popularity of the episodic nature of the first game in the rebooted franchise, WB has made a decision to release this one as a full priced, completed release.

Hitman 2 will also include a new Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone features that adds a co-op experience to the series for the first time, enabling two players to work together. That being said, IO Interactive will still provide "tons and tons of post-launch content".

We mentioned nearly this time a year ago that IO Interactive had managed to retain the rights to the Hitman franchise, after severing ties with publisher Square Enix. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) signed a publishing and distribution agreement with the developer in April, so more games could see wide-release, and now the next game has been announced.

That's all you need to know to get Hitman Sniper Assassin and check out the creative co-op ways you can take down your targets. We're also told to expect information about new modes and features closer to launch, so it sounds like the Hitman 2 deserves to be a numbered entry.

Hitman 2 will be released on November 13, but it's already available for pre-order in a number of different editions with varying levels of cool expansions and whatnot. Instead of offering a full game, developer IO Interactive made a decision to parse out the different chapters over a few months.
