Square Enix has told VG247 that the publisher is "currently not working" with Hitman voice actor David Bateson on any projects.
Bateson, who voices assassin Agent 47 in the IO series, mentioned Hitman 5 in an interview published last week.
However, there's nothing going on currently with Bateson, according to Square.
"Mr. Bateson's comments are flattering, though come as surprise to us, as we are currently not working with him on any projects," a rep told us.
Hitman 5's been rumoured to coming out by next Christmas, although nothing has been confirmed as yet.
