Hitman Blood Money and Absolution Rated for Xbox One and PS4

Hitman Blood Money and Absolution Rated for Xbox One and PS4

The last two Hitman games might see a release on modern consoles.

Hitman 2 is right around the corner with a November 13 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but Warner Bros Entertainment's plans for the series might be bigger. Gematsu noticed that Hitman: Blood Money and Hitman: Absolution have been rated over on the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) website. The European ratings group has both games listed as PEGI-18, suitable for players 18 years old and over, and coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Hitman: Blood Money is a classic, with some of the most memorable levels and scenarios in the franchise. Hitman: Absolution was the first game in the series published by Square Enix proper, aimed at a larger audience. Fans had problems with Absolution due to its focus on story, more streamlined mechanics, and use of a checkpoint system, which prevented players from messing around with the environments to find the best kills.

Are we looking at a remaster or a straight port? And will they be sold separately or in a bundle? Both games are currently available on Steam, with Hitman: Absolution going for $19.99 and Hitman: Blood Money going for $9.99. The last bundle released was Hitman Trilogy HD for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, collecting Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money.

You can check out our preview for the upcoming Hitman 2, and a look at the series' first PVP mode. Hitman 2's first Elusive Target, played by veteran actor Sean Bean, is coming a week after launch.
