First look at Agent 47 in the new Hitman film

2007's Hitman movie wasn't awful. In fact, I'd be willing to believe that people were even fans of the adaptation. But there's certainly plenty of room for improvement and here's hoping Agent 47 delivers where the prior movie...

Yesterday, there was a report that sort of confused Hitman fans everywhere. People thought projects were canceled, and the franchise was in jeopardy, but here's the real rub straight from Square Enix. Apparently, the ini...

IO cancels projects to focus on new Hitman game

When you think of IO Interactive, Hitman comes to mind. Maybe Kane & Lynch or Freedom Fighters as well -- sorry to reopen old wounds -- but the long-running stealth franchise is certainly right up in there. We'l...

Hitman movie reboot 'Agent 47' to star Paul Walker

It's been an unusually long time since I've been able to use the word "reboot" here, but with the recent Hitman Absolution still fresh on our minds, it's only natural that the term would come up in relation to the popular ste...

Check out this real life Hitman video featuring Agent 47

So I'm a huge fan of Timothy Olyphant (basically Justified above all else), but the Hitman movie left a lot to be desired. Enter this neat little fan video, directed and edited by Michael Shanks, that hi...

Review: Hitman Absolution photo
Review: Hitman Absolution
by Conrad Zimmerman

Six years seems like a long time to have to wait for a new Hitman installment, but I/O Interactive certainly kept themselves busy during that time. With a powerful engine under the hood (in the form of Glacier2), the baldest assassin of all-time is stepping out with a taut, exciting adventure that doesn't skimp on its depth of exploration.

Is Absolution the best Hitman yet? Maybe not, but it's definitely a contender.

18 minutes of Hitman: Absolution's Contracts mode

I can hardly be the only one who gets tired of seeing unimaginative trailer after trailer, which is why this video for Hitman: Absolution is so great. It's approximately 18 minutes of IO Interactive demonstrating the game's ...
