IO Interactive’s Hitman series has always been renowned for its stellar single-player gameplay experience, but today new information surfaced about the possible inclusion of a multiplayer mode for Hitman: Absolution.  This would mark a first for the Hitman franchise, and the developer isn’t quite speaking freely about the online capabilities of the game, other than that it’s “very, very interesting.”

IO Interactive producer Hakan Abrak told the folks at Eurogamer:

We’re not ready to talk about it right now.  Hitman is an assassin who works alone, but you never know in what form or in what way we could give you an online experience.  It’s unfortunately not something I can talk about right now, but I can say, in the story part, Agent 47 definitely works alone…. 

 

I want to say we do have something very, very interesting coming up in Hitman: Absolution on the online side. We’re not ready to talk about it right now. Hitman is an assassin who works alone, but you never know in what form or in what way we could give you an online experience.

Abrak added:

It’s unfortunately not something I can talk about right now, but I can say, in the story part, Agent 47 definitely works alone.  

Ever since Hitman‘s inception in 2000, developer IO Interactive hasn’t integrated any sort of multiplayer component, even in the game’s offline mode. This will indeed remain the case for Absolution‘s story, as Abrak stressed above.

Hitman Absolution will be headed to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC next year.
