Hitman Absolution Will Be Out On Nov 20

The next Hitman game will be out on November 20 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, Square Enix said today in a press release.

There's also a preorder-exclusive bonus called Hitman: Sniper Challenge, available only if you preorder the game at a GameStop. Here's what Square Enix has to say about it:

Developed by IO Interactive A/S, a Square Enix studio, Hitman: Sniper Challenge is not part of the main game, but a stand-alone experience to reward fans who pre-order Hitman: Absolution. Players can don the suit of Agent 47 as he takes on an exclusive assassination assignment. From a balcony overlooking a rooftop gathering, players will be tasked with taking out Richard Strong, Jr., CEO of Stallion Armaments, along with his entire staff of bodyguards. Skilled players will capitalise on score multipliers, hidden secrets, unlock equipment upgrades and marvel at the many creative ways one can discretely dispose of a body while they work to fulfil their contract in the most efficient way possible.

Is there anything grosser than preorder bonuses? That, I do not know.


    Seems to be the day for release date announcements. Here's hoping Tomb Raider's up next with a time frame.

    Cant wait for this game!

    Oh that's cool. Offer a pre-order package to only parts of the world with a Game Stop. And those silly developers wonder why piracy runs rampant.

      Gamestop and EB Games are the same company, we will likely see the same deal over here.

    Anyone else notice the dig at Assassins Creed right at the end? He shoot the bloke perched on the corner of the building, and you hear a falcon or eagle cry as he falls. LOL

    November??? That's Call of Duty territory. Hope they know what they're doing.

    Worst pre order incentive I have ever seen, but I am still very excited about this game. Didn't get into the originals too much, but blood money was an amazing game.
