As it turns out, David Bateson is the returning voice actor for Agent 47 in Hitman: Absolution. Would you really have it any other way though? Bateson has been the voice of Hitman since the year 2000 with the original PC release of Codename 47. Square Enix had announced in the past that they had no plans to return Bateson as 47’s voice talent.
It is good to see that Square Enix has brought the true voice back to the character. Whatever situation was hindering the casting before seems to be all under the bridge now.
