Hello and welcome back to our Elusive Target series! Almost 2 months since ET24, a lot has happened in the world of Hitman: IO Interactive were dropped as a developer by their publisher, Square Enix, and then post-E3 confirmed that they had secured their own independence, and along with it their continued stewardship of the franchise going forward. It's been a rollercoaster of emotion as a diehard Hitman fan with 100+ hours sunk into this incredible game, but they seem to be coming out stronger, releasing the ICA Facility tutorial location for free and attracting new players with deep discount sales.
Looking at today's Elusive Target, we have a new challenge to overcome, as we're not made aware of the target's physical appearance until we're on location. Enjoy our 50 minutes of Japanese whiskey, explosive ducks and sneaky gardeners.
