Despite the recent news that Square Enix Montreal’s Hitman game has been cancelled, work on the series continues at IO Interactive, it has been confirmed.
“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," Square Enix told Polygon.
"We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year.”
Despite this, however, the publisher has been quiet as to why the Square Enix Montreal Hitman title has been canned.
IO Interactive's continued dedication to the series should come as little surprise. The studio laid off staff in 2013 and resolved to concentrate purely on the production Hitman games. Still, it’s nice to know that we’ll be seeing our favourite badass baldie again soon.
