IO Interactive sent out a couple of letters in early 2014 to the fans, telling them that the work on the next installment in the Hitman franchise has begun. However, no information on the game was revealed throughout the second half of the year.
2015 will not be the same though, as IO Interactive via twitter has announced that more information on the game will be shared during this year.
@kirolos55 There's more info coming this year and we can't wait to share it!

As of now, we have just received one concept art image for the upcoming Hitman title, which you can see above. This picture is taken from one of the missions in the game that will take you to Central Europe.
Previous entry in the series, Hitman: Absolution was not liked by a lot of fans due to lack of exploration options and linear gameplay. Due to this reason, IO is taking the series back to its roots where fans will be able to complete the mission in any way they want.
The possibility is that the next Hitman title will be unveiled at this year’s E3, and might come out this fall or during the first half of 2016.
