Io stealths further formats

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is now set to appear on Xbox and PlayStation 2, as well as PC-CD

Source - press release

Eidos has announced this morning that Hitman 2: Silent Assassin will be released on Xbox and PlayStation 2, as well as PC CD-Rom, in autumn of this year. The announcement flies in the face of a recent rumour, which suggested that developer Io Interactive was to part company with its publisher to focus on a new, unnamed project for Electronic Arts. Trusted sources within Eidos have already denounced the rumour. Hitman 2: Silent Assassin is the successor to the relatively popular Hitman: Codename 47, which suffered at the hands of critics when it was released on the PC last year. Silent Assassin, which we have played, is expected to capitalise on the game's niche success by improving the overall formula, and we like the idea of using music composed and performed by the Budapest Symphonic Orchestra to heighten the atmosphere. After all, most assassins like classical music. Related Feature - PlayStation 2 and Xbox screenshots
