We have some gaming news for Hitman fans. Square Enix now also owns the trademark Hitman Sniper Challenge. Is it possible that a Hitman 7 is now in pre-development or is it a game for PS Vita?
Hitman Sniper Challenge Release Date: TBA – possibly late 2013/2014
Hitman: Sniper Challenge sounds like a mobile or social game for Facebook and not like a full-blown game like Hitman: Profession , but you never know what their intentions are until they announce more details.
So far, I would definitely speculate that Sniper Challenge will either be a mobile PS Vita game or a social game for Facebook, while Hitman Profession will be the “next triple A game that IO Interactive is working on” in their Montreal studio. By the way, if you are considering a career in game development, you should consider relocating to Canada, Montreal. Looks like it’s going to be the new Austin, Texas.
The triple A Hitman game will not be out before late 2013. Due to the nature of social games, it’s possible that the social Hitman game will be out before that.
Anyway, it’s great to see that Square Enix is working hard on the Hitman franchise and that possibly two new games are coming. C47 will always be a gaming legend and deserves a little attention!
