2016’s Hitman is being re-released as Hitman: Definitive Edition.
Hitman: Definitive Edition is currently set to release on May 15th in the US and May 18th in the UK. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will feature the base Hitman game and all associated DLC. For those curious, that means that you get all Hitman: Season One content, the Summer Bonus Episode, and the Blood Money Requiem Pack. However, the disc itself will only ship with the base content. All other content will have to be downloaded digitally.
The Definitive Edition of Hitman even includes some new cosmetics based on previous IO games. Players will be able to unlock wardrobes and unspecified items based on Freedom Fighters, Mini Ninjas, and Kane and Lynch.
As exciting as that all is, it’s not the part of this announcement that is catching everyone’s attention. It appears that Warner Bros. is publishing Hitman: Definitive Edition, which wouldn’t be interesting were it not for the fact that the game was originally published by Square Enix before they and IO parted ways. Given that the official statement makes reference to this being part of the deal between WB and IO, it sounds like future Hitman games may have found a new publishing home.

For the time being, though, we cannot recommend Hitman enough. This 2016 title may have utilized a controversial seasonal format, but in its complete state, it is the best Hitman game ever made.
Whether you are a fan of the series or have always been curious about the Hitman titles, it’s a must-play game.
