The Hitman video game franchise is a series of stealth action games developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix (now known as Square Enix Europe). The first game in the series, Hitman: Codename 47, was released in 2000 for Windows PC, and subsequent games have been released for various platforms including PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo consoles.
In the Hitman games, players take on the role of a genetically enhanced assassin known only as Agent 47. The gameplay revolves around completing assassination contracts in various locations around the world, with a heavy emphasis on player choice and freedom in how to accomplish the objectives.
Over the years, the series has seen multiple sequels and spin-offs, including Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, Hitman: Blood Money, and Hitman: Absolution. In 2016, a soft reboot of the series simply titled Hitman was released, with a focus on episodic content and open-world levels.
In addition to the main games, the franchise has also inspired a Hollywood film adaptation in 2007, as well as a television series adaptation released on Hulu in 2021.
