Square Enix Montreal's next-gen Hitman canned

Development teams move over to a mobile Hitman title instead

The next-gen Hitman title that was in development at Square Enix Montreal studio has been cancelled.

The cancellation has been confirmed by senior game designer Richard Knight on his LinkedIn profile which states that the project was formally cancelled last year. Square Enix Montreal's next-gen Hitman canned

Another staffer's profile along with that of network engineer Anthony Pressacco gave details of the title offering up that it would feature first and third-person combat, online leaderboards and even some form of microtransactions.

Instead, according to Pressacco's profile Square Enix Montreal are now working on a Hitman title for iOS and Android platforms.
