Hitman HD Collection outed by Italian retailer

Ever since the marketing for Hitman: Absolution kicked in, we've found ourselves craving a return to Agent 47's older adventures from yesteryear. Well, today our silent prayers were answered as an Italian retailer, 16games, (spotted and translated byEurogamer) has put up a listing for a Hitman HD Collection.

The collection doesn't yet have a release date, but it's running for 30 Euros, or about $37. The listing reveals the cover art and shows that the collection will include Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money. So sadly the first game wont be available.

Though it hasn't yet been officially announced, it's very rare for a listing like this to pop up and be false. Hopefully we'll be seeing this collection release this fall during the ramp up to the November 20 release date of Hitman: Absolution.
