There has been some confusion yesterday/today about Hitman, in terms of which game is in development and where. Many websites including IGN have been reporting that the next-gen Hitman has been cancelled.
However today, Square Enix sent us an official statement. According to them, we can stop worrying because the next-gen AAA Hitman game is still in development and will be released for next-gen consoles & PC.
“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. We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year.”
