Hitman: Absolution
Hitman HD Collection Spied on GAME
Written By
View author's profile

Last month, the Hitman Triple Pack was spotted on an Italian retail site listed only for PlayStation 3. We reported the news on our sister site, but now it looks as though there's even more credibility to last month's report and a distinct possibility that the Hitman HD Collection could also be appearing on Xbox 360.

Previously, the Hitman Triple Pack posting had been spied on Italian site 16Games exclusively for PS3 with a release date slated for October 15th, 2012. However, a listing spotted on GAME has the Hitman HD Collection for pre-order on both PS3 and Xbox 360, with a tentative and vague release window of '2013'.

Could we be seeing an HD bundle comprising of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money turning up on Xbox 360 next year? If this Hitman HD Collection listing is to be believed, then the answer is a resounding 'yes'.

In the meantime, Hitman: Absolution is out on November 20th, 2012. Check out our latest preview here.

[Thanks, Tony]

Only hitman game that is really good is Bloodmoney. All the other are either average to poor.

Until recently, If you asked in store, GAME were still listing the Splinter Cell HD collection for 360.

Whenever a title turns up and it is not immediately apparent which platform it's for, they'll list it for at least the PS3 and 360.

I wouldn't get too excited until it's officially announced.

Why would Blood Money be included in the pack? That's already on 360 :/

#9 BM is not in this pack but was mentioned above because it could be in the next triple pack 4,5,6.

I'd rather 1, 2, and Contracts. Either way, this could be really good news.

@2 Infinite "cool story bro", lol epic win.

OT: Would be awesome to have the HD collection of Hitman, was one of my fav games on the PS2 and was basically the whol reason I still played it after I got my XBOX.

But since Blood money is already for the Xbox what are they gonna do? re-release it? or are they gonna beef up the graphics from a "port" to a "Re-port".....

Why waste a spot on Blood Money? I can go to almost any game shop in the UK can get it for £5 or less, seems stupid when they could give us Hitman 1, Hitman 2 and Hitman: Contracts instead, and let us have the whole series on one console.

Contracts sucked hard, but Blood Money was good and Hitman 2 was full on brilliance. If they update it with some of the fancy extras for the later games I'd adore it (hope that doesn't ruin it).

Hmmm Blood Money again? Well, some places around here in London are charging through the nose to get a copy of BM, and the game is 6 years old >.< Well, that's gonna be really weird if they update the graphics of that...

Why not Hitman 1??????????????????????????????????????

Remove off Hitman Blood Money because it is already released on Xbox 360 so make sense put Hitman 1 with 2 and 3.

I cannot understand why developer not want Hitman 1 on consoles. Stupid move.

Or have Hitman 1 and Blood Money with 2 and 3 to make 4 games for HD. :)

Oh well I know wouldn't happen but I want Hitman 1 on console. :)

As I never got the original Hitman I thought contracts was pretty good, and Silen Assassin was possibly one of my favourite PS2 games so fingers crossed this is legit. As for BM I've already had it on PS2 and 360 but I'd happily play it again for some extra cheevos.

I'd buy this. But I'm still pissed Ubisoft never put out the Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell collections on 360. At least this is a pleasant surprise.

I already own Silent Assassin, Contracts and Blood Money. I think they should be more concerned about not ruining the franchise with Absolution.

As long as it has Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Contracts, then I'm set. Even without the first one I would LOVE to play Silent Assassin and Contracts. Unfortunately it seems a lot of people don't know that Contacts ISN'T actually Hitman 1...despite mission similarity.
