    Diana from the Agency is the announcer on all the trains here in Denmark, and every time I ride them I totally feel like I'm on some special mission...

    They really need to do something different with this franchise. Iím glad theyíve been working on it for a long time but if itís just Hitman with new graphics and fuck all new to say. Then thatíll be the death of it for me. Here's hoping.

    I think I'd be happy with a blood money expansion pack, tbh. Although I can understand the desire for iteration.

    To be fair though it's kinda what I want in a new Hitman game. I've already heard this stuff about cover based shooter to appeal to the casuals and it just reminds me of Splinter Cell and I hope they don't go down that road as that'll really be the death of it!

    They need to make it less fiddly and a little more intuitive. I like the games but I always feel like I'm battling against the system.

    I wouldn't mind a cover system since the combat at the minute is a bit rubbish and pretty much relies on you being able to soak up bullets. If they were to make the game more combat orientated that would ruin it though.

    The eternal divide of people that want something new and those that just want the same. They canít change everything until it becomes unrecognisable (as that obviously would become a different game entirely), but, they have to evolve I feel. A halfway point would be acceptable. If itís taking this long and all they can offer is 'more of the same' - then I've had enough.

    Assassins Creed 2 really made me want a new hitman game.

    You know, where you could be an actual assassin

    Oh I'm all for evolving and taking the genre forward but I don't want to see it turned into another linear run n gun fest with chest high walls, a 5-7 hour campaign and a confusing as hell story.
    Hitman has that unique thing going for it where each level is a mini sandbox and there are many ways to go about your objective. In fact I wasn't aware of some of the strategies people mentioned on BM until now! If they evolve in any way then it should be into more of a sandbox type environment giving you more freedom.

    Anyone that is a fan of the Hitman series would hate to see it go in that rather unlikely direction. If itís going to evolve (and it has to) then it should be to its strengths.

    I agree although they try to aim at the largest audience (which is the run and gun crowd who have a mental breakdown when a game is not hold down fire button to win)

    I would love to see Hitman 5 with the style of levels from blood money but with better controls, the pessimistic side of me thinks it will be chest high cover shooter, where Agent 47 will say "fuck" every word with that shitty graphic filter from K&L2

    Good god, given my silly penchant for listening to Extreme Ways in London terminals, that'd just tip me over into fullblown nerd mode :D

    God damn it.

    * Strong focus on story - Pointless
    * 47's "assignments" are open missions in previous games - Ok, good. Glad to hear it.
    * The game also contains elements which 47 are on assignments. These parts are more linear and are firearm-focused, cover, etc. - FUCK OFF
    * The game is developed parallel to the other Hitman movie - Ah shit, that's the game fucked then
    * You will get to play as more than 47 during the game, including a female assassin - Why?
    * David Bateson returns as the voice actor for Agent 47 - Whatever

    Reboot! New look! Uhoh.

    Never played BM, will stick it on my lovefilm. Loved Silent Assassin.

    If those are true, it sounds like they had a focus group meeting entitled "Operation Franchise Buttfuck"

    Iconic game character - change him, add new characters that no-one gives a shit about
    Awesome gameplay - Change it, add cover shoot outs because that worked so well for us in the Kane & Lynch games

    That does sound shit. Hitman was at its best when it aped Thief the most. The only time gunplay came into it was if you'd repeatedly fucked up a mission and wanted some catharsis-by-rampage. If this turns into another 3rd-person, cover-based shooter it can fuck off.

    IO are pretty much the only big budget dev that are happy to achieve mediocrity in their titles. I'd love this to be awesome but I don't think they're on the pulse any more.

    This is my main worry. The other points I don't really care about; playing as a different Hitman (female) indicating co-op? Or a branching story?

    If they keep it closer to the originals, co-op could be fantastic. It'd give them a new spin on the mechanics and allow for some pretty inventive solutions to levels (which was one of the main draws of the games for me).

    I hope those rumours are crap but you just have to look at games today and know there not :(

    Still, I will believe it when I see it....then I cry about it.

    FFS I hope those rumours are bullshit, sounds they are aiming at the run and gun crowd. I read the fuck up that produced K&L2 was in charge and you can see his handy work. Cunt. (also the guy is up him self with his BS "reviewers not getting it)
