Edit- The trailer is no more. For now, anyway. Sorta-explanation below.
We’re still agonisingly denied a look at Hitman 5, aka Hitman: Absolution, aka Hitman: Subtitle in as-it-plays action, but at least we’ve got some raaaawk-soundtracked, stylised pre-rendered kill sequences and scene-setting to stare at. It also features a sort-of naked lady, but you can’t really see anything, but if you’re reading this in a place where an image of a sort-of naked lady but of whom you can’t really see anything would cause you trouble, like a nunnery or on a projector in a primary school classroom, you probably shouldn’t carry on.
Update: Right, so this one has had to disappear for the time being. Sorry! Here’s what a Square-Enix spokesperson had to say about our man of the shadows creeping back into the shadows:
“For many years people think they have seen agent 47 in public only for him to disappear from view, slipping past people like a ghost. The only person who decides when 47 will be seen is the man himself. But the rumour is he will appear at 10.47am L.A time on Wednesday.”
There’s probably some sort of hidden message in there. What could it mean?
