WB Games Officially Announces Hitman 2: 'Think Deadly'

WB Games and IO Interactive have officially announced their stealth assassin game Hitman 2, which leaked earlier this week due to a retailer listing and logo.

The sequel to 2016's episodic Hitman sees Agent 47 and his trusty handler Diana working together to uncover the deadly Shadow Client and eliminate a variety of targets in creative ways. As the trailer shows, 47 can steal disguises and rig vehicles for tragic outcomes, just like he's always been known for. It also offers up a tantalizing tagline: "Think Deadly."

Unlike the previous game, this won't be released episodically and will be released as a full package right from the start, though there will be post-game content for players to sink their teeth into. Thanks to IO splitting off from previous publisher Square Enix and retaining the Hitman rights, the sequel will instead be published by Batman: Arkham publisher WB Games.

Preordering Hitman 2 grants players access to the "Sniper Assassin" mode, which lets them eliminate targets solo or with a friend. "Sniper Assassin" is available once you preorder and pick the system you want the game for. Hitman 2 will arrive Nov. 13 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
