Hitman 5 evidence grows

Just announce it!

The heavily rumoured Hitman 5 looks increasingly likely after a number of online CVs mentioned the game.

Two profiles on LinkedIn (spotted by PlayStation Lifestyle) mention the game – one even suggests it'll be out in 2011.

Damien Simper's profile reveals he worked as a lead animator on Hitman 5 at IO Interactive from 2006 to 2009.

Developer Theo Engell-Nielsen worked as a programmer at the Danish studio on a raft of titles. In his profile Hitman 5 is listed as a 2011 title and as finished.

In July Eurogamer brought you the news that IO was working on Hitman 5 and was due out Christmas next year at the earliest.

Square Enix told Eurogamer: "It's flattering to see so many fans are eager for another Hitman game. Unfortunately we have nothing to announce at this time."

And only last month the voice actor who plays Agent 47 in the Hitman series mentioned Hitman 5 in an interview.

Rumour of a fifth game in the stealth-em-up series has been rife since the release of the last Hitman game, 2006's Blood Money. Perhaps it's time to come clean, Square Enix.
