Despite its success, Square Enix released IO Interactive last May, cutting the company loose based on "disagreements" with the franchise, leaving Agent 47's future in question.

Io Interactive is expected to announce the next Hitman game on June 7, but a leak on the game's official website has revealed the logo of Hitman 2 ahead of its reveal.

The existence of a logo for Hitman 2 suggests that 6pm United Kingdom this Thursday we will see a sequel officially announced. Of course, details on Hitman 2 are practically non-existent, but given the success of the previous episodic experience, we could be getting more of the same. The logo was taken down soon after it appeared.

Our guess is that Warner Bros will simply handle the distribution of the game and IO Interactive will retain the game's rights.
