Square Enix has finally confirmed Hitman Absolution, the fifth game in IO Interactive’s well loved and unique stealth series.

The story sees the protagonist, Agent 47, being hunted down by both the police and people that he once trusted. It’s said to be a more personal narrative and is all about a conspiracy.

The game will apparently be familiar to fans, but at the same time will be very different, bringing some brand new features to the series, none of which have been disclosed as yet. It’s also the first game to make use of IO’s new Glacier 2 engine, and the art direction will apparently be unique.

Hitman Absolution is due for release next year.
