Well now that depends on how 47 bows out, if he decides he has exacted enough revenge on Providence and then retires to the canary islands to live in luxury then it does not matter as much. If he is shot in the back and then nothing then people will be really angry (Except for me depending on how they would handle it and that would be hard to do).
I hate it when people compare 47 to god.
I mean sure, he is great and all, but he ain’t no 47.
David Bateson is 47, unless he has twin brother(s)(afaik he has not). BUT if Mr. Bateson unable for Hitman then IO should find someone else and make him/her another ICA agent.
Or they could make a game like Half Life: Blue Shift.
They should just make a new character instead ruining existing characters. For example if you want to make a more heroic story you create a new character.
They aren’t going to get rid of 47 anytime soon.
IKR? He’s got plenty of time left. What is he, 46? 48?
He won’t leave even after he’s 80. It’s just like Batman or James Bond or Lara Croft. They will continue to make stories about these characters forever.
