– The finale of Season 1 in the new Hitman game has been dated. The mission will be hitting on October 31 and will be set in Hokkaido Japan.

There is no word as yet if there will be more seasons of Hitman but it appears the episodic nature of this entry has been both a critical and commercial success.
