Eidos announces Hitman: Bloodmoney
New Hitman game to be released next Spring.

- Eidos today announced that the new Hitman game, developed by Io Interactive, will be released on Spring 2005 on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. Titled Hitman: Blood Money, this will be the fourth game in the good stealth action series starring the bald antihero, Agent 47, and the third game of the series released on Playstation 2, after Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Contracts.

When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are systematically eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until suddenly he loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing.

The only novelty announced so far by Eidos is that this time Agent 47 will be paid in real cash that the players will be able to spend in order to get the preferred weapons and gadgets. Io designed a new version of their Glacier engine to create an experience more realistic than in past games of the series.

"Considerable time and effort has been spent developing a new version of the Glacier engine that enables us to implement many new and exciting features. The quality of the graphics and A.I. surpasses even our own expectations and this combined with a gripping narrative and the introduction of some really inventive characters makes us confident that Blood Money will be the greatest Hitman title to date," said Janos Flösser, managing director of Io-Interactive.

"The Hitman series is one of Eidos' biggest franchises and goes from strength to strength with every new installment. Io-Interactive is one of the world's most accomplished developers, and yet again has raised the stakes in terms of graphics and gameplay with Hitman: Blood Money," said Mike McGarvey, ceo of Eidos.
