It looks like Square Enix may have pulled the plug on the next Hitman game, with the LinkedIn profile of Richard Knight, a senior designer at the company, revealing that it was cancelled last year in 2013.
According to the LinkedIn profile of another Square Enix employee, network engineer Anthony Pressacco, the studio is now working on “an unannounced Hitman game” for Android and iOS.
The cancellation of the next Hitman game has not been formally announced, but then neither was it ever formally proclaimed to be in development — however, following last year’s “extraordinary loss”, the company vowed to refocus on smartphone and tablet gaming.
