Contrary to reports the next Hitman game is still headed for consoles.
It was reported yesterday the Square Enix’s next-gen Hitman project had been cancelled and that the IP would in future be focusing on smartphones.
This, however, is not the case.
“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,” a Square Enix representative told MCV.
“IO-Interactive is developing a new triple-A 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.”
