Yesterday they began tweeting hints about an official reveal later this week, but last night they accidentally went and posted a logo for the game on their website.
Another tweet which sparked more excitement, this time from WB Games, pictured a race auto.
While the incriminating Hitman 2 logo has since been removed, but of course, someone was quick to take a screengrab before it disappeared.

Nadal powered 39 winners past Marterer, who pushed the Spaniard as hard as he could without ever threatening an upset. She broke straight back, winning on her first match point when Mertens double-faulted.
What's interesting is that it didn't say "Season 2" instead.
Both the official Hitman account and WB Games teased that an announcement was imminent that tied into the series, especially with E3 on the horizon. Games or developer IO Interactive on the sequel, but it seems all too likely that come Thursday, we'll get a new look at what's in store from Agent 47's next assignment.
Since 2016's Hitman reboot was brilliant, this is obviously great news, but the omission of the word "season" from that title raises questions about whether its episodic structure will return.
