Today, Warner Bros. and IO Interactive announced a worldwide publishing and distribution deal for Hitman. As part of this, Warner Bros. will publish the Hitman: Definitive Edition for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 18, 2018.
According to the companies, Hitman: Definitive Edition features new in-game disguises for Agent 47 inspired by other IO Interactive games like Freedom Fighters, Kane & Lynch, and Mini Ninjas. The Danish studio has been around for twenty years now so this release is also a celebration of its history. As expected, the package also contains all of the Hitman content released for the first season of the game.
David Haddad, the President of Warner Bros. Interactive, issued the following statement alongside the Hitman: Definitive Edition announcement.
We're very excited to be working with IO Interactive, a talented studio with a long-standing legacy creating the iconic Hitman games. The passionate, global Hitman community has embraced the recent return of the series, and we're thrilled to bring the Hitman: Definitive Edition to fans and new players next month.
IO Interactive has been through a lot recently since its split from Square Enix. It's great to see that the studio found a publisher. Hopefully the team will officially announce the next season of Hitman soon. E3 2018 is almost here so it's a great time to do so!
If you don't want to wait for Hitman: Definitive Edition, you can always play the complete first season right now on various platforms. The game currently goes for roundly $40 and features Xbox One X enhancements.
