Square Enix has registered a new trademark for the Hitman franchise, which was filed on the 22nd of December. It's for a property known as Hitman: Profession.
This could be the title that newly formed development studio Square Enix Montreal are working on, after it was revealed that a second Hitman title was in development alongside Hitman: Absolution.
More information is sure to surface about this project, if it is indeed a game, as we go through the year. Who knows, it might even be a title for next-generation platforms.
