It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about Hitman 5. There have been some signs, a trailer before E3 last year, but more often than not there have only been ubstantiated rumors. Numerous sites have apparently has stumbled across a job listing, where IO Interactive is looking for several candidates to work on one of the “most exciting projects” in the company’s history. There’s certainly no confirmation that this “exciting project” would be Hitman 5, but it does open the door to speculation…again.
