UPDATE: Seems we may have jumped the gun a bit earlier today stating that no mulitplayer would feature in the next Hitman game. Well it seems the Twitter message could be seen as just referring to the trailer scheduled for release later today. That isn’t to say that a multiplayer is certain, it’s just that for now at least there is no confirmation one way or the other. Hopefully E3 will reveal more next week.
Ever since Square Enix released a teaser shot displaying silouettes of women with guns for their upcoming release Hitman Absolution, gamers have been speculating that a multiplayer may be introduced to the series. This lead to a mixture of concerns and excitement. Sure multiplayer might be cool, but how would it work? Would it have to stray from its roots and become more of a straight up shooter?
Well the speculation can now end as it seems a multiplayer isn’t going to happen with IO Interactive practically confirming that there is no such option in the game posting on their official Twitter page, “We’ve heard people chatting about this. Today’s trailer is NOT related to multiplayer in any way. That’s a NO to multiplayer.”
So it seems Absolution will be a solely single-player affair. Disappointed? Relieved?
Remember a new trailer is making its debut at 1pm BST later today.
