An episodic Hitman always made sense. Even when IO Interactive and Square Enix were routinely flubbing exactly what shape this new approach would take, the idea of a Hitman game released piecemeal over the course of a year remained appealing.

After Hitman Absolution failed to recapture what so many people loved about Agent 47's escapades, particularly in Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Blood Money, IO wisely went back to its roots.

India has long been faced with a slow-motion bank crisis. In particular, the state-controlled institutions that dominate the sector have a bad-loan ratio that’s almost twice as bad as their private counterparts. At last count, non-performing assets made up more than 10% of banks’ advances, and were growing ever faster. Naturally, banks faced with this burden aren’t exactly eager to lend, so credit growth to the private sector has hit historic, multi-decade lows. Set against this, the central government’s plan to recapitalize the banks it owns has long been considered laughably small—just $1.5 billion was set aside in the last federal budget.

On Tuesday, the government took its first step toward fixing that problem. Finance minister Arun Jaitley announced a plan to give $32 billion to banks over the next few years. This is still only a fraction of what independent analysts estimate is necessary to restore state-owned banks to health. But it’s a start toward ensuring that the investment pipeline in India works again.

Even so, it’s far too early to celebrate. The finer print of the announcement was, frankly, disquieting. The implications for both India’s banks and its macroeconomic stability aren’t quite as positive as they might appear.
