Are these the first Hitman 5 images?

IO puts in-game pics of "unannounced game" online

In-game images of Hitman 5 have seemingly appeared online, after an IO Interactive employee teased an "unannounced game" on Twitter.

Tore Blystad, a developer at IO, has uploaded several images from the mysterious title and while he refuses to comment on what the game actually is, he's confirmed they're in-game and that the announcement has been "a loong time coming".


The images show in-game environments, a female character and even what appears to be a level design scribbled on a whiteboard. It all looks very Hitman.

Last week, Square Enix trademarked Hitman: Absolution, which will surely be the title of the first Hitman game in five years.

All eyes on E3.
