And so begins the long, long road to actual information. Game marketing in the second decade of the 21st century is all about the drawn-out tease - we already knew Hitman 5 was in on the act due to news of an apparent alternate reality game associated with sharp-suited baldieman Agent 47, and now we have the results of said ARG. Screenshots! Screenshots of gloves!
So there you go. The next Hitman game will feature the lead character from the Hitman games. Shock! Also, guns and well-rendered gloves.
Also dug up by the cleverbrains on the Hitman Forum are the strong suggestion that we'll see an E3 reveal for 47's next murderous escapade, plus references to the CN Tower in Toronto. A level involving pushing corrupt businessmen or something off the top of a huge tower? Works for me.
Keep an eye on this thread for more revelations as/when/if they're found.
