Hitman 5 teaser image?

Don't you think it might be the first advertisement for Hitman 5?

I'd say move along folks, nothing to see here.

In that case, the ad was done half-ass, and could well be from IO.
The only thing I did in Photoshop - put watermarks. The rest is real.

It's a very nice photograph, indeed. It says style over substance, though. Jelly doughnuts are not stacked in a box that way, rather on their side. The obviously photoshopped UPC code that doesn't reflect on the table. The back of the box doesn't form anything, there's just a corner fold that extends off the page. It's just a superfluous "beauty" shot.
Looks kinda cool, if you ask me.
For a Hitman teaser with this theme, I would have preferred the appropriate box with doughnuts, one missing from box, laying outside close enough to the UPC code. One bite out of doughnut with jelly seeping out with maybe a few jelly drops spattered around table and side of box to give the appearance it was dropped (after a poisonous bite of course). This doesn't give away any extra details than the glamour shot, but also doesn't scream "fake" or "staged".

What would be cool is if the 110509 in the first part of the barcode is May 9th, 2011 and they revealed something that day. Not counting on it but 'twould be cool.

I don't get why people have to be so confrontational... Simply, if you can see a white box reflected on a white surface, then you can obviously see a black upc code reflected with much more clarity. It's not rocket science, and its not "fuckin stupid" as you put it. Chillax.
You can barely see the reflection of the box. You're expecting to see the damn barcode reflected 100% clear on the table
A black vellum-surface laminate counter top would have fixed the no-reflection problem as well as tied in the Hitman color-scheme some better.
@Acid Burn - Could you possibly post a picture showing the facing page in the catalog? It might not be a teaser ad at all, but rather an editorial photo for the facing article. I can make out a "Y" and and "S" which could be the end spelling of "jellY doughnutS", which would in turn refer to the jelly donut awards:
http://www.aolnews.c...y donut awards/
which is tied in with the Sundance Film Festival. That doesn't explain the UPC code though.

Valentine's Over now.
Pretty much sucks to see people looking at magazines and freaking out. IO Interactive said the same thing on twitter when E3 LEAKED TRAILER popped up "Its Cool, We like it"
Sleep ya all.
Hitman is fucking dead.

One interesting thing on use of DOUGHNUTS is
In BLOOD MONEY : CHAPTER - A NEW LIFE. Agent 47 does use DOUGHNUTS , Syringes them for some purpose i can't remember, probably to kill Sinistra or some shit.
SO NICK, you better now eat those DOUGHNUTS, i smell AGENT 47 in the vicinity

110509-040147 <- The donuts bar code number
640509-040147 <- Agent 47 bar code number (according to wikipedia)
These numbers differ only on the first 3 digits. I wonder why Nick doesn't shot down this rumor, like he usually does. It either is too accurate or too ridiculous for him to say anything.

1964 - supposedly was the birth year of 47
2011 - release of something related to Hitman?
The donuts depict 47's chaotic attack on the FBI by poisoning every donut factory in the world.
