As long as they don't do something stupid like turn it into a fps then I'll probably buy it

Square Enix Montreal's Hitman to offer 'a fresh take on Agen

BioWare should do it like this, one team for old classic BioWare RPG goodness and one for whatever Mass Effect 3 was.

I shall bet one tube of Jelly Tots that it'll have multiplayer.

Come on stealth, at least keep with the above theme and say it's getting trailmixed reviews...
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

This is actually worrying news. I really hope they don't continue down the Conviction route. I really enjoy Absolution but it's not what I loved the Hitman series for.
EA Sports: It's in the game(for a price).

If they're going to do this, i hope its new perspctive involves the transportation of larger weapons over larger/
open maps.
I bought absolution for the PS3 (still amazed whats being done on current gen hardware, looks and plays very well, they got those controls down smooth!) but they didn't get everything right. This is a more personal, moody Hitman title and I can see and understand the compromise for a tighter, better experience. One of the best in the series, even though I still wish he pulled his guns from his holsters.

Interesting. Maybe we will see another Hitman game on current gen consoles? I find absolution to be great so far but don't feel it's better than Blood Money. Still I'm very interested in another game in the series.
