Hitman 2 accidentally outed by reveal site

Are you a techie who knows how to write?

The Hitman franchise has followed a twisted road.

The existence of a logo for Hitman 2 suggests that 6pm United Kingdom this Thursday we will see a sequel officially announced.

Beloved industry insider "lashman" linked Hitman 2's logo on the Warner Bros. website ahead of its reveal. After 2012's Hitman: Absolution was launched to a lukewarm reception, IO Interactive (the franchise's creator and developer) fell into a bit of a lurch, eventually being purchased by Square Enix. However, now it's clear as day that fans of the 2016 iteration of Hitman will be getting what looks like a full-blown sequel to the game, instead of another "Season" of new content like the previous game employed.

Donald Trump wants an apology from Disney execs because they cancelled 'Roseanne'
Asked if he was OK with ABC canceling the show before it could be considered for Emmy Awards, Goodman shrugged it off. Just as he did on Memorial Day, Trump tweeted a statement making Barr's firing all about himself.

Our guess is that Warner Bros will simply handle the distribution of the game and IO Interactive will retain the game's rights.

Hot on the heels of teasers popping up on Twitter, it looks like someone has jumped the gun and leaked Hitman 2, the logo for the game briefly appearing on the site of new publishing partner Warner Bros. The tweet says "Good afternoon, 47".

This tweet also features a video of a blurred figure and the words "Access Denied // June 7th, 2018" flashing across it.
