I haven’t seen a thread like this on here so I wanted to open one related to the morality of the contracts the ICA accepts.
While the contracts we’ve taken on throughout the history of the Hitman franchise are morally defensible, I sometimes feel like this shouldn’t always be the case.
47 is portrayed as a cold, calculating and immoral killer for the most part and the ICA as a whole is portrayed in the same light yet, for some reason, they don’t seem to accept any contracts that aren’t morally justifiable. Now, undoubtedly, this is to cater to the majority of the fanbase that would likely be opposed to killing people that they believe don’t deserve to die but I feel like it’s a road that could, at the very least, be touched upon to see how people react to what it would actually be like to be as immoral as 47 is reputed to be.
Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to have 47 start killing old grannies while they’re doing their shopping but I feel like it would be interesting to take on contracts that we, as players, may not actually want to carry out.
I want to hear everybody’s thoughts, for better or for worse because I feel like it would create an interesting dialogue and make us all ask questions.
