Rocksteady not doing Hitman 5 after all

Eidos boss shoots down those rumours.

Eidos bossman Ian Livingstone has dismissed suggestions Rocksteady Games is working on a new Hitman title.

Last week the eagle-eyed internet spotted a reference to "Hitman 5" on the CV of actor Mark Sloan. The CV also mentions Rocksteady.

But when PWGM asked Livingstone about it he replied, "This is the first I've heard about it. Hitman always has been and always will be IO Interactive's baby, which it still continues to be so."

Just to be crystal clear, he added: "Rocksteady are not involved with the development of Hitman 5."

Looks like you got over-excited AGAIN, internet. No more orange squash for you.
