Hitman 5: Absolution, the fifth game in the long-running IO Interactive/Eidos/Square Enix series, has been officially announced! Although no platforms were revealed, the game will be fully unveiled at E3 2011 on June 7th!

Hitman: Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.

“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the Hitman fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience from other Hitman games; something our silent assassins will relish, as will all those new to the Hitman world.”

Showcasing IO Interactive’s new proprietary Glacier 2 technology, the game has been built from the ground up for current-generation consoles. Boasting a cinematic story, distinctive art direction and highly original game design, Hitman: Absolution combines much-loved classic gameplay with completely new features never seen before in the Hitman franchise.

Here is the debut teaser trailer for Hitman 5.
