Hitman 5 is in the works with a release date set for 2010The next edition of Hitman is scheduled to be released next year; according to recent reports IO Interactive is already working on Hitman 5 and will be unveiling it early in 2010.
The as yet unnamed episode will reportedly be joined by a new Hitman film based on the game. On its part, IO Interactive has confirmed that there a new game and a new film are both in the pipeline. However, the publisher has made it clear that there will be no overlapping between the game and the film.
Sending out a strong message to Hitman lovers, IO Interactive promised that enthusiasts will be receiving the Agent 47 of old in Hitman 5 and the character will be entirely unaffected by his Hollywood incarnation. The 2007 Timothy Olyphant starrer Hitman film was, while not well received by critics, quite successful with gross earnings of more than $100 million.
While IO Interactive has been pretty much quiet about Hitman 5, it was forced to make a statement and wash its hands off the film in order to put to rest the rumour that the game and the film are tied.
“I can tell you that there is no way we will be basing a storyline for a new Hitman game on the story in a licensed movie,” an IO Interactive community manager said in a statement. “That’s just not how we work so you shouldn’t be concerned about that.”
