Hitman: Absolution
Hitman Franchise to Take Call of Duty Approach, Splitting Development Between Two Studios
Written By
View author's profile

The Hitman franchise looks set to take a leaf from Call of Duty’s book.

Following the release of Hitman: Absolution, developer IO Interactive has said that future games in the series will be alternated between development teams.

"It's like with Treyarch and Infinity Ward," said Hitman: Absolution director Tore Blystad. "You have an IP that has been developed. They will feed off each other, as well as [have] some things that stand out.

"I think with these big franchises it takes a long time to develop just one game. If you can, work a little bit in parallel at least and help each other out."

This change of approach means that another developer will be taking on the series for the first time.

"There are talks between us and of course it has to be somewhat in sync," said Blystad, "but it's the first time you could say Hitman has gone out of the house. 

“Luckily it's with someone we know. Some of the key developers came from IO and have been working on previous games so it's not like it's in completely new hands."

It’s an interesting approach, one that suggests that Square Enix will be hitting hard with the sequels. Is that what you want? And more importantly, how do you feel about another developer taking the reigns of the Hitman franchise?

Let us know below.

Having already got doubts about absolution and holding off buying it just yet, this confirms they're catering it for the 'COD generation'.

RIP one of my favourite series.

Why do developers think it is a good idea to churn out quantity over quality? One of the reasons people hate COD so much is because they never take their time with it and develop it into something original, please can developers actually start listening to their target audience!

These games are few and far between because people take their time to think about it and put in a lot of effort, as does anything Rockstar put their name to and the Elder Scrolls team. This time and thought is what makes their games so amazing and leads to amazing sales figures and fan base. I could guess that a yearly Hitman/GTA/Elder Scrolls would start to feel stale after a while...

Love the ability of internet posters to instantly throw up their arms and start preaching the end of days.

As long as they keep a few years between games (3 year minimum) then i cant see how this is going to be a bad thng, surely it can only benefit.

Then again you never know how blind those dollar signs can make you.

I would like to see who it is they would like to have work with them. Also this frees up IO to work on other projects instead of just doing Hitman.
And this isn't the first time they were talking about someone else making Hitman games. Originally when Vin Diesel was supposed to star in the Hitman movie his game studio, Tigon Studios, was supposed to make a game as well, but opted to make The Wheelman instead.

Everybody's being so negative! There are so many examples of a different team making interesting decisions that better a franchise... Treyarch with Black Ops, 343 Industries with Halo, Rockstar Vancouver with Max Payne, Ubisoft Montreal with Far Cry, Obsidian Entertainment with Fallout, Criterion Games with Need for Speed... the list goes on.

All this really means is we won't have to wait six years between Hitman games like the wait between Blood Money and Absolution. It doesn't mean the franchise is going annual, and even if that was to happen as long as there are two different teams it shouldn't make any difference to quality -- there were two year gaps between Hitman 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Depends on how close the games come out from the previously one, if next October a Hitman game comes out, I may rent it, but I certainly won't buy it and have the hype that I had for Absolution. But if the sixth Hitman game comes out in 2014 than I may preorder it. But that's just me.

And FYI to everybody still hesitant about picking up Absolution because the commercials are showing gunfights constantly, in my opinion it's impossible to get more than two shots off and walk away unscathed. This game is still very much a stealth game

Listen to @18 people! Stop doing your best chicken little impressions and use your brains! Hitman is a very formulaic franchise by its very nature, there's no reason this will have to be a bad thing unless the b-team doesn't get it at all.

Well I can see this been a good thing, if one company goes the route of Absolution with a more story driven linear approach, and the other going the way of old with all the sandbox hit levels, then it'll keep it fresh.

Why do this when Absolution seems to be nothing less than a Hit(no pun intended)? I understand they can't produce more than one in a give period of time but I feel that another company could mess this up for them.

I can't believe they killed one of my favorite game series of all time. First Absolution is a piece of shit and now there going to kill it even more by handing it to other developers? I'm going to play Contracts and Blood Money,not the heavily scripted piece of shit that Absolution was! :(

Yeah i must say this is a horrible idea. and it literally proves that game company's MILK the Titles of the games which make the sales. so pretty much just because it says "Hitman" they expect high sales. and same goes for Call of Duty, just because it has that name on the box, they can roughly calculate how much money they will make off of it before its even shipped out the door.

its pathetic what the game industry has become over the last 4 years or so, its been nothing about getting the most $ out of the consumer for the LEAST amount of product/content they can possibly get away with, without people throwing their arms in the air right away and not purchasing it. They have found the right MILKING BALANCE. its very very sad.

Is it a good thing? Yes

Will people like it? No

People act like Call of Duty games only get 1 year for concept, development, and release. They seem to think that the games don't get started on until the other developer's game gets released.

I doubt Hitman will be getting yearly releases, but it will be more often than it is now. And that's a good thing, because it doesn't mean less work is going into them. It just means there's more people working on the series, so they can get the same work done in a better timeframe.

This not what I want to read or hear from one of the greatest franchises to me. I love playing Agent 47, the music and atmosphere. The multitude of ways to approach a target, stealth or berserk.

I don't agree or believe this method will produce good resultsbut I hope it does. After playing Absolution, I hope they have 2 different characters. I could see a different type of gameplay with Victoria.

No. Please Square Enix do not do it. I understand CoD keeping repeat every years but Hitman is great franchise and need be few years each other of series. Better stick to this. IO is great developers and need good, take time and polishes well and easy to force on that game for long time in developing. :)

Absolution is amazing series of Hitman as I must said and yes of courze it got bit of buggy for Play Style ane few gamers got problem with save corrupted (myself dont have this which is relieved).

I do happy if new developer in developing of Hitman series that fine as long as they release few years each other not every years. One of my worry if Hitman keep every years like CoD then will become another franchise getting bored quickly after one to 3 years if Hitman releases every years. Do not ruin it please, Square Enix and IO. Thank you!!

Wow this site is full of a bunch of whiny little girls. Seriously, I have played every hitman and absolution is by FAR the best Hitman title. The levels have way more options then any Hitman before, and many levels are very large. They never said there will be a new game every year. I swear, people hear a game has SOMETHING in common with COD no matter what it may be, and they immediately think the game is going to suck. You have no clue what their plans on so stop acting like you know how the game will turn out. It's not this generation of game developers that have the problem, it is all the so called "gamers" who complain about every little thing, and find something wrong with every game.

@44 Only thing I really don't like about Absolution is the whole disguise thing. Makes no sense that every person wearing the same outfit as me would recognize that I'm an imposter. And I just hide my face to get past them. Other than that, I agree it's my favourite one so far.

@46 I think it is a good idea when it comes to say a group of mechanics, or just a small group of guys, but I do agree it could use work some work to make it more believable. For instance, if you are dressed as a cop you should not alert EVERY cop in the level, but I like the challenge it provides.

@44 Totally agree.

Having multiple teams work on a franchise is not at all uncommon and calling it the death of a series is misinformed, pathetic and untrue. The idea of Hitman being milked to the extent of CoD is ludicrous, and all this implies is that Square Enix have recognised that it has a dedicated fanbase and wants to make it a somewhat higher priority. Hell will freeze over before it becomes annual.

I thought I would add one more thing. Some people are saying this game is more linear then previous titles in the series. Well I have recently played through all the previous games once again, and Hitman Absolution actually gives you the most choices when it comes to how you want to approach something, and most of the levels in the game are at least as large as blood money's, some are even larger. Also while there are one or two levels that are somewhat linear not offering that many approaches, but that fits with the story of the game very well and is necessary. That in no way means the series has been made casual as I have seen a few people say. And once you get to the final mission (MINOR SPOILERS)




You can see agent 47 is going back to his old ways where he is no longer being hunted but is now going back to taking on contracts. Things that were in the previous hitman games, like being able to choose your weapons, detailed target briefings, etc, I don't think they were not included to make the game more streamlined, but rather to fit with agent 47's circumstances in the game. I believe they will come back later on in the series due to what the developers have said, and the approach they chose for absolution made perfect sense.

Not that this matters much, but this is actually not new information. Apparently a year ago when they were setting up the studio they had already said their first game would be a Hitman title. In fact it was 1 year ago today lol.

An economical decision, I'd guess. If they could just go back to the roots of Hitman and make a game that shines in that aspect that made it unique: performing silent assassinations. Blood Money was a very good game with really tough missions and a lot of ways to secretly get rid of the foes.
The series should stay like that. No "guns blazing"-thing!

#60 Linear missions sucks? Play game and missions is amazing. Fewer is shorter but still game allow you choose many ways to end mission either gun blazing, stealths, different ways to kills on enemies and people, exploring around level before complete etc...

Story is great to follows. I want see next Hitman game take levels above from Absolution. I not want to see next Hitman game come with short like original series. I want see next Hitman game come with Absolution's gameplay, linear missions, graphic engines etc.. Because Absolution is best Hitman series in my opinion and new Hitman game in future need close or same to Absolution. :)

after all of those years between titles, why would they want to ruin the franchise with a model that produces annual non-innovative rehashes?

call of duty should be a model franchise in the video gaming world, that being the model of "if cod does this, than you shouldn't because your game will probably suck too if you do".

To everyone who is.panicing and predicting bad things.. answer this

Is call of duty better than it was pre yearly release? Cod 1 was basic fps, the incremntal changes made after they went to a yearly release got it to where it is today. Im not saying hitman need over saturation. Im saying nothing has been seen about the next game other than screenshots.

All we know the next game could be best in series. Who knows? What hurt CoD is the stale state and many competitors with similar products to make it seem even more stale. Hitman doesnt have that. Look at Assassins Creed.... does the yearly release cycle mean crappy games? No each game has been improving on last. And thats been what 5 games? Going into the 6th game in
ame number of years.

Full disclosure I use to love CoD up tilworld at war. And i do not enjoy AC all that much either, just examples to make points.

Bottom line: let us all wait and see what the next Hitman game is all like before we jump to conclusions.

P.S. I hope 47 gets back to doing more "hits" im half way through Absolution and am tired of getting to the'crosshair' just to find out im doing an escape route mission instead of a hit. I love the story aspect and story driven gameplay but comeone! Put an ear bud back in 47s ear and let him work.
