Hitman 5 clues crescendo

Grr, ARG.

Evidence of a new Hitman game is mounting.

Members of the Hitman forum have been on a wild goose chase following a trail of cryptic ARG clues all pointing towards Hitman and its star, Agent 47. At one point the inquisitive thread-starter was sent a picture showing a script (possibly for a game) on a table and a pair of black leather gloves.

The next clues point to the Berlinale film festival. Given that the trail began with a picture of a box of doughnuts at the Sundance film festival, the link makes sense.

The community expects a reveal at the E3 show in June.

Eurogamer was told, last summer, that a new and fifth Hitman game was being worked on and would be "most likely" released sometime this year.

There hasn't been a Hitman game developed from the ground up for PS3 and Xbox 360. The last game, Blood Money, was ported and upscaled from Xbox to Xbox 360. Eurogamer awarded Hitman: Blood Money 8/10.

Since Blood Money, IO has gone on to make Kane & Lynch - a series that started promisingly but got worse. A return to IO's flagship Hitman IP is long overdue.

Hitman: Blood Money.
