Square’s dashed rather blatant clues today that everyone’s favourite bald murderer’s on his way back.
Design firm Great Graphics (via Kotaku and GAF), who’s previously worked with Square on Kane & Lynch 2, stuck up some poster art showing Herr 47, some flames and a great big “2011″ leading most to assume the obvious.
“The concept art was created as part of a portfolio, intended to showcase an artist’s style or method of work and does not represent any new Hitman game,” Square told VG247 in a statement today.
Danish developer IO has put out four games in the stealth series so far: Hitman: Codename 47 (2000), Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (2002), Hitman: Contracts (2004) and Hitman: Blood Money (2006).
Variety rumoured a fifth title in 2009 for release later this year. Clearly, that’s not happening either.
IO is currently working on the imminent launch of Kane & Lynch 2.
