It's finally time to kill Sean Bean in Hitman 2

It's finally time to kill Sean Bean in Hitman 2

IO Interactive's Hitman 2 is a massive game packed full of murderous opportunities for creative assassins. It just got even better. The first elusive target is now live and offers players one chance to take down Sean Bean, "The Undying".

Players have just under ten days to dispatch the always unlucky Sean Bean in the game's Miami location.

With only one attempt, it's going to be tough choosing the best weapon for the job. Will you pick him off safely from a distance or get up close and personal for a little piano wire fun? Whatever you do, don't mess it up or he'll be gone for good!

Telltale's final Walking Dead season back in development

Skybound Entertainment has confirmed that work has resumed on The Walking Dead: The Final Season in the wake of Telltale's closure.

"It’s been a ton of work logistically and legally to get us to a place where we’re able to roll up our sleeves and get to the actual work," said Skybound.

The time spent sorting legalities since the closure of Telltale has resulted in a delay for the final two episodes of the season.

Sunset Overdrive Director is moving to The Initiative

Sunset Overdrive Director is moving to The Initiative

Microsoft has been making some major moves recently in acquiring quite a few huge triple-A developers and studios.

After the recent acquisition of Obsidian Entertainment and InXile, the company is looking well and truly ready to start releasing some console exclusives. Sony has had a monumental run of console exclusives in recent years and it's no secret that Xbox fans have been left out in the cold for just a little bit too long.

Today news broke that Microsoft has added yet another developer with some serious chops to join their recently founded internal studio, The Initiative. Insomniac's Drew Murray, who worked as a Lead Designer for Resistance 3 announced on Twitter that he will be joining the newly formed Microsoft Studio. Murray was also the Director for Insomniac's phenomenal, yet under-appreciated Sunset Overdrive so will hopefully bring some of Insomniac's unique sensibilities to whatever project he works on next for The Initiative.

Check out his Murray's Tweet below.

I'm personally starting to get very excited by all of these big moves Microsoft is making and hope it leads to a bunch of amazing exclusives in the coming years.

It looks like Square-Enix is working on a PS5 title.

Gamers are an eagle-eyed bunch. We're always scraping the depths of the internet for leaks and hints at things to come.

Someone has spotted a lovely little tidbit on the unlucky Square-Enix staffer's Linkedin page. Luminous 3D's Lead Character Model Artist, Tomohiro Tokoro profile included mention of a "New AAA title for PS5". The page, as expected was updated to remove the listing, but thanks to the impossible nature of removing anything from the internet, we've got a snapshot of the resume below.

Report: Sony won't be at E3 2019

In a statement to Gameinformer, Sony has announced the rather curious decision for PlayStation not to appear at E3 in 2019. The event, which is arguably the biggest one in gaming is approaching it's twenty fifth year and usually sees Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft hosting a press conference or showcase of some sort.

Sony stated that "As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community. PlayStation fans mean the world to us and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you”. When asked if fans could expect to see Sony holding an event off-site during E3. the company further elaborated "We will not activate or hold a press conference around E3."

It's a very strange decision on Sony's part, but gaming fans have been questioning the importance of E3 during recent years. Sony's press conference has long been one of the more popular parts of the show and this will mark the companies first time not attending E3 in twenty four years.
