Hope News Times Issue #5 Released For Hitman: Absolution

May 24, 2012 Written by Nick Michetti

The latest issue of the Hope News Times has been released by Square Enix for Hitman: Absolution.

The Hope News Times Issue #5 contains news about Dexter Industries, which seems to be growing in power with news that Richard Strong Jr., the CEO of company Stallion Armaments, his bodyguards and possibly others — a total of 16 people — were murdered in a violent incident described as gang-related. After news of Strong Jr.’s death, Stallion’s stock plummeted in value, which saw Dexter Industries picking up 34% of the company. Stallion Armaments is described as a direct competitor of Dexter Industries by Blake Dexter himself. Dexter’s press release about the purchase of the company is expected to raise production demand, which would create new jobs in Hope, according to the headline. Insight into what happened to Strong Jr. and his bodyguards may be offered when Square Enix & IO Interactive release new screenshots of the game tomorrow.

In lighter Dexter-related news, an “advertorial” for the paper shows Lenny Dexter (Blake Dexter’s son) talking about his love of Roberto’s Chicago Style Pizza.
