Hitman 2 accidentally outed by reveal site

As seen in the tweet below, Hitman fans should expect IO Interactive and Warner Bros. The short video clip shows what appears to be some kind of racing game, but we reckon this may be a bait-and-switch and actually related to the recently hinted Hitman news.

Io Interactive is expected to announce the next Hitman game on June 7, but a leak on the game's official website has revealed the logo of Hitman 2 ahead of its reveal. This wouldn't have been put there by accident and it seems way too coincidental for it to be referring to a new auto game, but wait, there's more.

Here is the link for the Hitman 2 logo.

What's interesting is that it didn't say "Season 2" instead.

The official announcement is due at 6pm on Thursday, and the game will presumably be at E3 next week.

In November 2017, developers IO Interactive committed themselves to a new Agent 47 game, stating that "franchise firsts" and that more information would be revealed "at some point" this year.

Since 2016's Hitman reboot was brilliant, this is obviously great news, but the omission of the word "season" from that title raises questions about whether its episodic structure will return.
