The Hitman franchise has seen a resurgence lately (after a not-especially-good movie), with its latest video game iteration earning praise so strong that it bolstered a move to the small screen. Now there’s likely to be a new addition — coming soon. After a few social media teases, an image (briefly) appeared on Warner Bros. Games’ website.

According to Variety, this logo for Hitman 2 was the “apparently accidental” leak that occurred after the social media strategy pushed out the few Twitter pokes and prods in that direction:

And here are the tweets from the Hitman and WB Games accounts:

Unless this is an elaborate scheme to trick fans (and that seems very unlikely), the upcoming Warner Bros. Games sequel would be the 10th game in the long-running franchise that recently peaked with 2016’s Hitman. That game was already an episodic thriller of contract fulfillment, on-the-fly disguises, and mission improvisation -- so what do you think they’ll have to add to Hitman 2 to keep things fresh?
