Hitman developer's new target

IO Interactive, the developer behind the Hitman series, will be working on a completely new game for its next project - an Xbox 360 and PC action game called Kane & Lynch: Dead Men.

The game will feature co-op, squad tactics and online options according to US magazine Game Informer. Kane and Lynch are a mercenary and a 'psycho' who come into a large amount of money - they could change their ways and live happily ever after, but that wouldn't make the greatest game.

With only these few details available about the next-gen third-person action game so far, we'll make sure we'll keep you up to date when we hear more.
