Hello guys. This is my first topic here and i wanted to tell you about a curiosity that made the news back in the year 2001 in some forums and that today is a topic that has been buried or at least little is said about it.
It turns out that Hitman Codename 47 was going to have an official editor giving us the opportunity to make our own levels, edit characters, objects and more, in order to give the user a tool that will allow us to expand the possibilities of the game. This tool was being developed by a team of enthusiasts known as “Psyche Productions” in collaboration with IOI who provided part of the code for the development of this application. However, despite the expectation created and the long wait, the story had a sad end and that is that this tool ended up being abandoned without a possible launch.
The reasons were several, however the one that was pointed out was because IOI was with the time counted to finalize its sequel Hitman 2 SA, which is why they decided to discontinue it and dedicate the time to a new game.
Affortunatelly existe some images of how this editor would look, which is surprising:
This was their official page:
What do you think? IOI should have released this editor or do you think it would have raised some problems with controversial mods?
