Next-generation Square Enix Hitman game not cancelled
Square Enix Montreal’s next-generation Hitman game has not been cancelled, contrary to reports that surfaced Monday.
A LinkedIn resume of a senior game designer at the studio was spotted by Videogamer saying the project, which was informally announced in 2012, was cancelled.
However, the publisher was quick to respond to the reports, telling GameSpot:
“There's a bit of confusion around the Hitman projects currently in development at Square Enix-owned studios and so we wanted to take the time to clarify what each studio is working on to clear up some of this confusion. Io-Interactive is developing a new, AAA Hitman game that will be coming to PC and next-gen consoles and Square Enix Montreal is fully focused on mobile development of games some of which are related to the Hitman franchise," the representative said. "We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year."
