Agent 47 is receiving an HD overhaul, due to be released about a month before Hitman: Absolution lands. The news comes from an Italian games retailer, 16Games. Featuring Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman 3: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money; this is definitely a 'best of' pack.
This has yet to be confirmed by publisher, Eidos, however it seems likely that the release date of October 15 is accurate as it would give players ample time to learn about Agent 47 prior to Absolution's launch date of November 20.
Hitman HD Collection is set to release on October 15 for PS3.

Having said that, the range of ways in which players may tackle problems is one of the strongest selling points for the series; it is nigh on impossible to become stuck on a section for lack of an alternative route.
