A few days ago, motion capture artist Mark Sloan stirred up rumours that Batman: Arkham Asylum devs Rocksteady Studios were working on Hitman 5, according to his resume. That was bad of him, very bad of him indeed, because it was not true. “This is the first I’ve heard about it. Hitman always has been and always will be IO Interactive’s baby, which it still continues to be so. Rocksteady are not involved with the development of Hitman 5,” stated Ian Livingstone, Eidos’ life president in a recent Q&A at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival.
So that’s that, no drastic dev changes for Hitman 5 after all. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s been quite a long time since we saw Agent 47 in action, and we’re getting quite impatient waiting for him to step out of the shadows once more.
