Square Enix Europe have trademarked Hitman: Absolution, possibly as the title for the fifth instalment of the Hitman series.

While not officially announced, sources say that the game is well into development at IO Interactive, the devs responsible for the Kane & Lynch games.

Based on teasers from IO, it looks like Agent 47 will be back as the main character and that the game will by out by the end of this year "at the very earliest."

Perhaps we'll see more about Absolution at E3, which is just around the corner.
