Leaked logo confirms Hitman 2

The new logo, which was quickly spotted by Eurogamer before being pulled, removes nearly all doubt: we're about to see Hitman 2 (here's the logo's original URL if you're curious, or if you enjoy 404 errors). It's unclear if this was intentional, but if it isn't it'll serve as a great reminder that browsers don't always have white backgrounds.

The next game by IO has been leaked on the Warner Bros. website, meaning that they will be publishing the game after Square Enix withdrew from the studio.

The Warner Bros. tease on its own makes it look like a racing game is being announced, but the 72-hour clock and its font are unmistakably Hitman. The publisher might take the image down on Twitter, so we've posted a screenshot of it below. Games sequel would be the tenth game in the long-running franchise that recently peaked with 2016's Hitman. Despite its success, Square Enix released IO Interactive last May, cutting the company loose based on "disagreements" with the franchise, leaving Agent 47's future in question. The approach received significant critical acclaim because it told an engaging story and provided lots of replayability.
