Responding to a fan, developer IO Interactive says Freedom Fighters is "definitely something" a lot of the team are "interested in doing," but will they?

Right now the "focus is on Hitman: Absolution." Freedom Fighters stars a New York plumber rising to lead a full rebellion against a Soviet invasion.

Overtime the player earns charisma which lets more members of the resistance join his squad. It also let us pick which areas to strike first in the game's campaign so we could soften up other levels to make them easier to overcome.

"It's definitely something a lot of us are interested in doing," IO twittered. "But right now, the focus is on Hitman: Absolution."

Freedom Fighters was then largely forgotten with IO Interactive moving on to new Hitman games and launching the Kane & Lynch franchise which got a sequel. Is it time for more Freedom Fighters to rise up and throw off the shackles of Soviet oppression?

Hell yes! I loved this game, in fact Ir ecently re-installed it and have een playing through it again. I was actually proper-peeved when I head they were cancelling any FF sequels in favour of Kayne & Lynch.

A FF sequel would be awesome indeed. K&L sucked big time. It's time to resist Soviet terror once again XD

The Soviet terror? Surely the world has moved on somewhat - even JB 007 has newer and more interesting threats.
