Guys, I have a proposal for current and future seasons of HITMAN.
I propose that the series becomes 100% Research Driven. What this means is that design for fashion, items, weapons, security, as well as security foils should be driven by what is at the cutting edge of real world developments.
I have mentioned the above in a couple of other threads but in case people are not sure what this is, this is noticed in particular in the Call of Duty series where ballistic weapons, accessories, and the onset of drone warfare paralleled (in an exagerrated way) developments in military technology of the real world.
But I’m also proposing that Main Campaign stories and Individual Missions drop the current Subject 6 plot thread and just also be inspired by real world developments.
For example the James Bond film Dr. No (1962) was being developed to dovetail 1 or 2 years prior with real life issues and excitement over NASA’s Mercury Space Programme which started in 1961. So when the film came out, it was when Mercury’s real life expansion and announcement of new astronauts was hitting the headlines while Dr. No’s plot was about trying to sabotage this programme.
At the time this was seen as something avant garde and it gave audiences a sense of heightened reality.
That means HITMAN for example could take inspiration from things happening in our world and in theory can stay relevant, interesting, and potentially go on forever.
What do you think?
