The announcement was teased earlier this week, and then nearly inevitably leaked by Warner Bros. itself, because no one can keep it in their trousers nowadays.
Just ahead of E3 2018, Warner Bros. It will be a direct sequel to Hitman, but unlike the previous title, which featured regular updates to its story via live content, Hitman 2's story will be revealed all at once on the day of launch (though there will still be some additional DLC, like new locations, released over time). Hitman 2 will take players to a fresh sandbox full of new weapons, locations, targets, and tools to plan their flawless assassination. To get all the latest on Hitman 2, be sure to follow Hitman on Facebook and Twitter and WB Games on Facebook and Twitter.
"We are very proud to announce HITMAN 2 as the next exciting chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination".

Back in February, after their historic win, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins told CNN, "I personally do not anticipate attending". LeBron: Give me one second, sorry. "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year , kinda stay consistent with that".
The game will include several global locations, including Miami, which is the settings for today's reveal.
The Hitman website details the Hitman 2 Collector's Edition, which includes the base game, the Sniper Assassin mode, the swanky Executive Pack (which gives those who pre-ordered an extra pistol and suit in-game), the chance to play the game four days early on November 9, as well as Expansions 1 and 2, which promises "a new location, missions, sniper map, outfits, and weapons". You can try it out as an early bonus if you pre-order Hitman 2's Standard, Silver, Gold, or Collector's Edition. Hitman 2 appears to be a traditional release following the episodic nature of Hitman 2016.
Coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Hitman 2 adds a whole host of new locations like a race track in Miami, and some rainforests, as well as a standalone co-op mode called Sniper Assassin.
