IO Interactive’s Hitman has wrapped up its first season but there are an additional two seasons planned. In a recent interview with GameSpot, lead writer Michael Vogt talked about setting up the characters and story with Season 1.

“We wanted to do a really ambitious story line that would span several seasons and also build this ensemble cast. In the old games, the targets were always the most interesting characters, but then you’d just kill them off instantly and move on to the next one. And now we wanted to build a much bigger main cast that will survive for much longer.

“The story’s really only beginning [with the first season]. Season 1 is the first act in a feature film. You know all the characters, you know the stakes, you know the dilemma, but it’s only getting started.”

While Season 1’s story wasn’t at the forefront till the end, Vogt noted that the developer aimed to make “at least the first half of Season 1 to feel like business as usual. You’re supposed to feel what it’s like to be Agent 47. You’re the best assassin in the world; you’re travelling the globe and killing the elite and all that and kinda feeling what it’s like for Agent 47 on a Tuesday.

“The prologue, which takes place in the past, is definitely on the main story, and then the main story fades into the background and just plays out in the cutscenes where we introduce the main characters… and then towards the end [of Season 1] we merge it again. Colorado is this merging point, where from now on and going forward, the missions and the main story are fully integrated.”

Hitman Season 2 doesn’t have a release date but you can expect a boxed version of Season 1 in the coming months for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Stay tuned for more details.
