PS4 & Xbox One Hitman Game Cancelled
When it was announced that Square Enix Montreal would be shifting their focus to mobile development, the fate of their next-gen Hitman title, presumably being developed for PS4 and Xbox One, was left up in the air.
The LinkedIn profile of senior game designer, Richard Knight, now confirms that the game has most definitely been cancelled, however.
Network engineer Anthony Pressacco’s profile indicates that the developer is still working on an “unannounced Hitman game”, but it seems that this will be a mobile title for iOS and Android.
Those hoping for a next-gen Hitman title need not be too concerned, however. Square Enix has previously indicated that IO Interactive, developer of the previous Hitman games, is still at work on the franchise.
That means that it’s still possible that the PS4 and Xbox One will be getting a Hitman game – the consoles just won’t be getting one developed by Square Enix Montreal.
