More Hitman In Square Enix's Sights
In a reply to a fan's tweet to the series' official Twitter account about what's next after the current slate of seven episodes runs its course, the answer is that there are three overall seasons planned.
@bergf89 Of course, our plan is to have three seasons. Although Season Two hasn't been confirmed yet.— HITMAN (@Hitman) August 6, 2016
The next episode in this first season is set in Bangkok, and it comes out on August 16 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A disc version with all the episodes is slated for release in January 2017.

Given that the full-priced Hitman released this spring as part of season one specifically encompassed seven episodes, it stands to reason that to play the second season would also require fans to re-up and either buy a new $59.99 base game for all of next season's episodes or get another $14.99 Intro pack that would house each episode in an a la carte format. That Square Enix is contemplating continuing this episodic format at all, is another matter.
