Jordan Oloman is a Freelance Writer for IGN who always wonders how much Agent 47 would cost if you scanned his barcode at the supermarket. But there will still be "post-launch content coming afterwards". Instead of offering a full game, developer IO Interactive made a decision to parse out the different chapters over a few months.

Hitman 2 will hopefully flawless the assassination sandbox that IO Interactive began with Hitman in 2016, according to a livestream on Twitch. Starting with the groundbreaking and award-winning Hitman series, IO Interactive has since developed the cult classic "Freedom Fighters", the controversial "Kane & Lynch" series and the adorable "Mini Ninjas".
