Updated November 7, 2019: According to an article in GamesRadar+, IO Interactive said that "we're now at a place where we are looking increasingly to the future. In real terms, we're moving more and more of the Hitman 2 team to join the next Hitman game, which is well underway."

Hitman 2 is a third-person stealth game that features a variety of levels and targets. You step into the shoes of Agent 47 and have to assassinate various villains. The game garnered great reviews at launch and has since expanded greatly due to strong post-launch content. The latest map takes you to Siberia. As expected, you'll have to take out some Russian foes. You have to eliminate two targets and start a prison riot to cover your tracks.

Luckily, the wait for this content won't be too long because it's coming to Xbox One and other platforms on July 30. However, that's not all. Despite the fact that Hitman and Hitman 2 weren't the massive blockbusters developer IO Interactive wanted them to be, the company is "looking ahead" towards Hitman 3. Additionally, another team is also working on a new franchise.

All of this was revealed during a Noclip documentary called "The Fall & Rise of Hitman." IO Interactive hasn't had the easiest time lately ever since its split from Square Enix. Hopefully, the studio's upcoming projects will revive its fortunes. Are you excited about Hitman 3 and a new franchise from the acclaimed developer? Let us know.
