IO Interactive A/S, a part of Square Enix Europe, has showcased Hitman Absolution to a private audience at E3. This will be the fifth game in the multi-million dollar franchise and will use the new Glacier 2 game engine.

"For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy," said Tore Blystad, Game Director, IO Interactive. "This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world."

Hitman Absolution will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC. The game follows the character of Agent 47, a cold blooded assassin who finds himself betrayed by those he trusted.

Hitman Absolution combines classic Hitman gameplay with a host of new features that developers claim have never been seen before in the Hitman series. IO Interactive says that the game has a cinematic story and distinctive art direction along with highly original game design.

The game was showcased by invitation only at the E3 exhibition in Los Angeles, and is scheduled to be released in 2012.
