According to a senior game designer’s LinkedIn profile, Square Enix Montreal has quietly canceled a next-gen version of the Hitman franchise. This next-gen iteration was originally announced back in 2012 but since then the company has reorganized and refocused. According to the same designers LinkedIn profile, an iOS game will be releasing soon to keep the franchise alive.
It should be noted that this information does not officially kill any specific project or mean that whatever was being worked on won’t resurface or be worked on in a different fashion. If you’ve been looking forward to another console Hitman game, don’t give up on it just yet!
