As the tweet says, an announcement is incoming this Thursday, June 7th. So what time will it happen? According to the original tweet from WB, you can expect this unveiling around 10 AM PST/ 1 PM EST. It will be interesting to see what we’ll get to see with this big announcement on Thursday considering we haven’t received any big hints of any kind.
It’s good to see a future for the Hitman franchise following IO Interactive breaking away from Square Enix and going out on their own. While it might have been unclear what would happen with the series, this announcement seems to be a big step for the studio, and is definitely great news for fans.
At this time platforms haven’t been announced, however Hitman: Season 2 will likely launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC as the first season was also released on these.
