Square Enix has revealed the full cast list for Hitman: Absolution which is being launched next month. After a lot of speculation, fans will be relieved to know that David Bateson will reprise his role as Agent 47. He is backed up by a strong cast who all have previous works in many popular TV Shows and Films including Lost, Dexter, Kill Bill and The Avengers. With the exception of 47 every lead character not only lended their voice to the character, but also performed all the motion capture for them also. The motion capture was performed in Giant Studios which is famous for being used for motion capture on films such as Avatar, Iron Man, I Am Legend and more.
The full cast list are as follows.
