Next Hitman Game Confirmed as Canceled
Filed under: HITMAN

According to a LinkedIn profile of a game designer at Square Enix Montreal, the next-gen Hitman game was canceled last year.

So what does Square Enix have in store for its Hitman franchise? Network Engineer Anthony Pressacco posted on his LinkedIn profile that Square Enix Montreal is now developing an "unannounced Hitman game" for iOS and Android. That should make Hitman fans super happy.

Square Enix itself hasn't made a formal announcement about canceling the Hitman title for next-gen, but they did comment this past summer that their Montreal office would be focusing on mobile games. As for the future of the Hitman series, they were going to leave that in the hands of the game's creators, IO Interactive. IO is supposedly working on the next console Hitman title, but of course, nothing has been confirmed or announced from that end.

These game designers are a bunch of idiots. Do they really think that producing games for smartphones and tablets is the future of gaming? A real gamer uses either a console or the trusty PC. gaming on tablets and smartphones is for retards.

The last one was total shit... A major downgrade from Blood Money, I'm not sad to see this cancelled..

It's not been cancelled. Square did a press release after this story broke clarifying that IO interactive were still working on a fully fledged Hitman title for PC & Consoles.

As for Hitman: Absolution, the thing that irked me the most was the lack of quicksaves. It deterred trying to work on creative solutions to take out targets in the way that Blood Money did.
