    Good timing. Steam Summer Sale is next week so you guys can okay that 90% off sale without consulting with a corporate overlord.

    I think I read on twitter that proceeds from the sale of Hitman go to IOI now, so hopefully sales are gonna help.

    I am glad IOI is still alive, hopefully it can keep itself that way. I am for sure buying any future Hitman games as long as quality is kept. Although Jesper Kyd would be welcome addition.

    What happens with Kane & Lynch? Who owns it and should I care or the IP is as good as dead?
    Yes, it's shit, but I loved the first game.

    If by free you mean they now offer a substantial demo, like we used to get back in the Old Good Days™ to properly find out what the possible purchace can include, well you'd still be wrong because to me that sounds like sound business-plan and consumer friendly decision.

    Great game, loved the characters, sort of shit the bed with dog days imo. Also the soundtrack was brilliant.

    Is there any particular reason why Square Enix would just give up the Hitman IP and/or any proceeds from past products like this? This doesn't sound like a particularly clever business-move for me, especially since this ain't some unknown IP from 20 years ago or so, but a rather famous one that has even been turned into movies.
