basetarded Posted August 14, 2009 Share Posted August 14, 2009 I think the game would lose it's focus and clarity in an open world. In our heads it's easy to imagine, with limited time and resources for a dev I think the game would have be dumbed down or lose it's creative options to work in a huge enviroment.One of the best things about hitman is giving you all these different scenarios and enclosed locations with a certain number of props and options and then lets you experiment. I'd like for the AI and those options to be more dynamic and varied in number but an open world/GTA hitman wouldn't work in the way you imagine it would. It's beyond realistic development. Or it would just be some hub where you drive from one mission to another instead of a menu screen. But anything more than that is just fantasy. There's a reason GTA style games all have the simple/usually linear missions. Dunno. I thought the New Orleans map in Blood money is one of the best maps of the series. It became something different with the large crowd walking about. Of course, perhaps it would be best to separate philosophy and budget? Would a new Hitman game have a limited budget considering the success of the previous games, or would it have a *large* budget? I hope they get tons of money! In the previous games, you could always complete any map simply by killing everyone. Thats a minor game breaker. The game obviously empathize on brains not counter strike type of game play. All though the hitman games is great fun, they are very limited because its all very very scripted. a larger world would create an illusion of things being not that scripted. I would imagine.
