Hitman’s next Elusive Target will arrive next Friday, May 27th, IO Interactive has confirmed today.
Following last week’s successful introduction of Elusive Target, Sergei Larin, aka The Forger, who appeared in a one time deal over the course of 48 hours in Paris, the upcoming target known only as “Congressman” will appear in sunny Sapienza, Hitman’s latest setting. Players will need to locate the elusive “Congressman”, who will be on a visit to the sunny picturesque town next Friday.
Players who successfully manage to eliminate five Elusive Targets will unlock the Hitman: Absolution suit in game, with ten successful targets unlocking the Hitman: Blood Money suit, additional completions will also unlock more suit variations. You can view the official stats from Sergei Larin’s brief visit last week below.
IO Interactive also confirmed via the official Hitman website that Episode 3 of Hitman “Marrakesh” will be playable at E3 2016, where a release date for the next episode will be confirmed.
“The blog post shared by Square Enix this week implied that we’ll reveal the first info about Episode Three at E3. That isn’t accurate. Episode Three: Marrakesh will be playable at our booth and we’ll reveal more about it well before E3. In fact, next week we will tell you the exact release date.”
Lastly, IO Interactive revealed via Twitter that the studio has seriously considered remastering 2006 title, Hitman: Blood Money, but stated that the studio’s sole focus was on Hitman for now.
@MVAZQU22 Yes, we have considered it. Blood Money is a much-loved game & we'd want to do it justice. Focus now is on the current game though

A remastered version of Hitman: Blood Money would certainly be a welcome one, with the 2006 title often regarded as the best game in the popular Agent 47 series.
HITMAN’s Full Experience is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC with each episode sold separately.
