Hitman Definitive Edition Announced, IO Interactive Reveals New Publishing Partner
When Square Enix first revealed that they would be turning the Hitman series into episodic games, many believed it would start a fresh new period for the franchise under the publishers. However, it seemed that this period would be short lived as IO Interactive announced that they would independently retain the rights to the series after Square Enix opted to let it go. It seems though that IO has been quick to partner up with another major publisher, announcing their partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive and it begins with a Hitman Definitive Edition.
An official announcement from Warner Bros. and IO Interactive was recently released. The two parties reached an agreement that makes Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment the publisher for Hitman video games.
Hitman Definitive Edition comes with the whole first season as well as the bonus Summer episode, the Blood Money Requiem Pack, and content from the previously released Game of the Year edition. The new inclusions celebrate IO’s 20th anniversary with costumes from the developer’s other intellectual properties including Kane & Lynch, Freedom Fighters and Mini Ninjas. It seems that a new era for series may now be dawning, and hopefully it is not eliminated too soon.
Hitman Definitive Edition will be available for retail sale on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One beginning May 15th, 2018. What do you guys think about the Hitman Definitive Edition?
