The existence of a logo for Hitman 2 suggests that 6pm United Kingdom this Thursday we will see a sequel officially announced. If this doesn't scream a new game then I don't know what will.
The most recent iteration of Hitman, 2016's reboot delivered in episodic form, received much praise and healthy sales, so there's every likelihood that Hitman 2 will follow a similar format.

Both the official Hitman account and WB Games teased that an announcement was imminent that tied into the series, especially with E3 on the horizon.
In November 2017, developers IO Interactive committed themselves to a new Agent 47 game, stating that "franchise firsts" and that more information would be revealed "at some point" this year.
