Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer IO Interactive have announced Sean Bean will probably die in Hitman 2, too.
The tragically gifted actor will appear in the game as the first Elusive Target mission, playing the role of Mark Faba – a former MI5 agent turned assassin. Despite Bean’s reputation for dying in everything he’s appeared in, his new character is curiously named “The Undying,” and has a reputation for faking his own death. I’ll believe it when I see it, Sean!
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Hitman 2 video game,” Bean said in a press release. “It’s always exciting to take on a new role, and I’m looking forward to everyone seeing my character in action when the mission launches.”
IO Interactive studio head Hakan Abrak also chimed in, “We’re very excited to partner with the talented Sean Bean on the first Elusive Target mission in Hitman 2. Elusive Targets have become a distinguishing trait in Hitman games as part of the constant stream of free live content for all players to enjoy. This new mission starring Sean Bean is one of many updates, features, modes and franchise firsts coming to Hitman 2, making the next chapter in our ever-expanding world of assassination a richer game for our passionate community and newcomers to the series.”
Hitman 2 is launching across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 13th.
