Voice Actor Confirms Hitman 5S

David Bateson, the voice of 47 in the Hitman series, says he's been asked to remove details on his website regarding his work on Hitman 5. But the actor confirms a sequel is coming, and it will be "gob smacking."

Speaking to The Gaming Liberty, Bateson was asked for details on Hitman 5 and replied "I have to plead the 5th Amendment on this one. I am under contract not to say anything." But he adds, "There have been delays," and "if the artwork is anything to go by… brace yourself!"

Apparently he's allowed to confirm the game's in progress. Which is hardly shocking, it's a very popular series, and IO Interactive is now owned by sequel-maestros Square Enix.

Further down in the interview, Bateson pays tribute to the legions of dedicated Hitman fans: "That kind of dedication and appreciation of the game deserves repayment … with an even more gob smacking installment in Hitman 5," he tells The Gaming Liberty. "I don't envy IO Interactive for the pressure they must [be] under to deliver. I am utterly convinced they will!"
