    Hitman: Absolution teases Assassin's Creed yet again

    After the tagline "The original assassin" it seems that Hitman devs are making fun of Assassin's Creed once again.
    I bet the game will be full of references to AC, so i can only hope that AC3 will return the favor
    Watch the end of the video.

    They aren't making fun of AC. Its actually an homage to the AC franchise. Both are "Assassin based" games after all.

    Well i didn't say "making fun" in a bad way, i know it's a homage, one that only AC fans can understand.
    Like i said, i hope AC3 returns to favor to both Hitman and Witcher 2.

    Hitman is awesome, can't wait to play that game...

    and I like this kind of reference in other games, if it's a funny reference or not it doesn't matter, the fact that they exist only show that other companies are aware of the success of the franchise..


    now we know how they'll end Desmond's role in AC3, poor Desmond... XD

    They're definitely stepping up their Aggro advertisement and TBH Hitman WAS the original Assassin, then again post AC2 the AC franchise became more of an action-adventure game....more boom boom less assassiny.

    I'm just happy that I'm getting 2 assassin based stealth-action games this year.
