Hitman 3 Announced

Worldwide Blockbuster Game Hitman Contracted for Third Hit (thanks HomeLAN Fed) has the latest news of Io Interactive's plans to continue their Hitman franchise with more of the stealthy adventures of the assassin codenamed "47" in a game to be titled Hitman: Contracts. Word is the Hitman Contracts Website is online, featuring a game trailer for the game, which is due "Spring 2004." Here's the deal:
Eidos (Nasdaq: EIDSY - News), one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced the eagerly awaited return of the world's deadliest assassin in Hitman: Contracts. The game is the third installment in the critically acclaimed, multi-million selling Hitman series. Hitman: Contracts is being developed by Io Interactive and will be available for PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, and PC in spring 2004.

Hitman: Contracts delivers more action-packed and suspenseful missions, with a greater variety of ways to make the perfect hit and an increased arsenal of firearms and close-combat weapons. A new graphics engine showcases Hitman's 'work' in brutal detail and brings new locations to life. An improved control system and more gradual learning curve will ensure that the game is accessible to all aspiring hitmen.

They only come out with the press release for this NOW?? This has been known for what, a couple of months now? Deus Ex : IW even came with a cardboard CD showing of an image of what I presume to be the cover art for this game.

Sometimes I wonder how companies decide when to do a press release. It must have something to do with either coins or hookers. Maybe both.

Anyways, I liked Hitman 2, the first couple of missions (especially the VERY first one, in Italy) were great, lots of freedom, but it became too restrictive later on, with only two paths to take to finish a level. I hope they focus more on the stealth part of things instead of creating levels where going in guns blazing is the easiest way to go.

I might pick it up, if it comes out at a time when there's not a whole lot else going on.
