After a little bit of worry from fans that Agent 47 would have a strangers voice in the next Hitman game, games.on.net has received a press release stating that the voice we know and love, that of David Bateson, will be returning to reprise his role in Hitman: Absolution.
Brand Director of IO Interactive Jon Brooke said “IO and Bateson have been bed fellows for over a decade and like all long running relationships sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder. Looking back I think we were just playing hard to get.”
Also playing Agent 47 is LOST star William Mapother, who has provided 47s movement via motion capture. These two are part of a growing cast of not-insignificant star-power for the game that includes Vivica A. Fox, Keith Carradine, Powers Boothe, and Marsha Thomason.
