For Season 2, I would really like to see some of the locations mentioned around the game, such as Kronstadt Industries, the industry that produced KAI as mentioned in ‘Situs Inversus’ and also the Ether Headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa as also mentioned in ‘Situs Inversus’ and also seen in the briefing for ‘The World of Tomorrow’. Also an oil rig for Hamsun Oil, as Ken Morgan was a lawyer for in ‘Club 27’ and the oil rig was seen in the briefing for ‘Freedom Fighters’ showing an oil rig in the North Sea and also some sort of embassy in New Zealand that Sean Rose was responsible for.
Perhaps also a location to do with Haven Corporate Services as they were also a client for Ken Morgan too. But for the Ether Headquarters in Johannesburg, how about a location for the private security militia ‘CICADA’ or another location to do with IAGO, of how they might have resurfaced? Or in season 2, the location of the vault that was seen in the small clip after the mission ‘A Gilded Cage’ as shown with "New York, 2 Days Later’.
I don’t know to be honest, I would love to see a headquarters for Providence or a ‘throwback’ if you will to one of the season 1 maps as IO Interactive did say they would, something for Hokkaido or the militia camp in Colorado, for a showdown or for a more important target, not to be repeated, or a throwback to a location like Sapienza where 47 has to go back because he missed a piece of evidence or he has to go back because Diana might have been kidnapped just like Thomas Cross, and 47 has to go back to old and new places solving riddles. Like going to Jordan Cross’ penthouse in Dumbo, New York and actually seeing if Jordan killed Hannah on his own or wasn’t persuaded by the mystery figure we keep seeing all the time, because he seems connected to everything. Or maybe to go into London and track down Olivia Hall to interrogate her about the mystery figure, just seems like a slight possibility.
I’m sure someone gets me.
Another thing I’d like to see for season 2 is to see some of the characters mentioned and shown in season 1, such as Olivia Hall, the hacker from ‘Freedom Fighters’. Thomas Cross as shown briefly in the ‘Club 27’ briefing, being mentioned in the mission itself and then shown in the clip in the airport where he was mentioned that he was kidnapped and his offshore bank accounts were then drained.
Another character I’d like to see is ‘Cobb’ or known as Eugene Cobb who is only mentioned for a brief moment in the cutscene after ‘A Gilded Cage’ and also in the cutscene after ‘The World of Tomorrow’. As mentioned his plane crashed labelled as an ‘accident’, but then in the tornado shelter in ‘Freedom Fighters’ he shown again as missing but for only Diana to say that most assassinations were branded as accidents or unsolvable, what if this ‘Cobb’ has been assassinated by the mystery figure? That’s something I’d like to see and know.
Another bunch of mentioned characters I’d like to see is the ‘Highmoores’ as mentioned in the briefing for ‘Club 27’, they may seem as insignificant to the story but may actually have a point in the plot. Just like ‘Mr. Fanin’ who was seen with the other mystery figure in the last clip after ‘Situs Inversus’ who claimed about Providence that “we won a long time ago. This? This is just maintenance”, but could Mr. Fanin be the CEO or head of corporate giant such as Hamsun Oil or Haven Corporate Services as being called ‘Director’ and told to ‘dig a trench’.
I also think for season 2, we should have some sort of betrayal between Diana and 47, where Diana learns the truth about 47s past and tries to confront him, turning the ICA against him and 47 becoming alone; the ICA becoming merely a pawn of Providence.
But saving best for last; the mystery figure, the one who had the deal with Viktor Novikov in the end clip of the mission ‘Showstopper’, the one who assassinated the ‘messenger’ in the clip after finishing ‘The World of Tomorrow’ to take the key which could only presumably be for the vault in New York as shown in the clip after finishing ‘A Gilded Cage’ and maybe assassinated the Eugene Cobb for his key to access the vault, as the vault does need 2 keys. I hope we see how the mystery figure did all this and what happened to Thomas Cross and whatnot.
However… what I would love to see the most in season 2 is for the mystery figure to team up with Agent 47 to takedown Providence as some major plot twist that pivots the whole entire story. Think about it, the mystery figure knows about Providence and uses Olivia Hall to gather information and intelligence to specific key targets, using the militia in “Freedom Fighters” to takeout Providence members such as alleged ‘Simon Deveraux’, CEO of Biosphere. The mystery figure then disguises himself as the shadow client, using the ICA to takeout prominent and key-targets in Providence, using Erich Soders to get closer to 47 but for him to be only killed in twisted fate by 47 himself, only to still use Olivia Hall to track 47 down, explain what he’s been doing and take down Providence together, but if some ask “then why was he pointing a sniper rifle at him at the end of 'Freedom Fighters?” Okay, so one the sniper rifle was clearly ICA-issue and could be identified as a ‘Jaeger 7’ and two, maybe he was acting as a guardian angel for 47. What if Erich Soders was the mystery figures fixer like Diana is with 47? There’s so many possibilities for season 2 and what could happen but I would really love to see that happen or in perhaps a later season.
Nevertheless, I know this was a lot to read and take in, but I hope you have enjoyed it and feel free to tell me your opinions on anything mentioned in this topic, or to add anything on and to ask me questions about what I’ve wrote and whatnot. Thanks
