Guess Who's Back? "Hitman Absolution" Is Official

We've been seeing clues about it, but today IO Interactive and Square Enix officially announced that Hitman Absolution is in development for 2012. The game utilizes IO's new proprietary Glacier 2 technology—no word on whether it's an actual graphics engine or just a system within a pre-existing engine. Either way, it sounds a whole lot like DICE's Frostbite 2 to us. Of course, Agent 47 isn't so big on destructible environments...unless by "environments" you mean "people's skulls". IO released a teaser trailer to go along with the announcement, and while it's about as revealing as a Victorian era nightgown, we have a feeling we'll be seeing a bit more of things come E3 next month.
