Hitman’s Agent 47 has a new handler, Benjamin Travis

A new video promoting Hitman: Absolution released today which introduces the new character of Benjamin Travis, who becomes Agent 47’s handler in the International Contract Agency, the secret espionage group always at the center of all the action. Travis replaces series regular Diana Burnwood who, based on information in this trailer, has had a kill order issued against her by the Agency, which I would guess has something to do with all of her double-dealings in Hitman: Blood Money.

Something tells me Travis isn’t going to wind up being a very good guy. Maybe it has something to do with the psych evaluations flashing past in the video which suggest he might be a little unstable and that, sometime prior to becoming 47’s handler, stopped being evaluated altogether. Yeah, that bodes well.
