Square Enix will work on its next global releases, "without focusing too much on the ‘global’ aspect," president Yosuke Matsuda told Nikkei Trendy. "For example, in the past, when we developed console games with a...
2007's Hitman movie wasn't awful. In fact, I'd be willing to believe that people were even fans of the adaptation. But there's certainly plenty of room for improvement and here's hoping Agent 47 delivers where the prior movie...
There are two Hitman games in development that we know about: one is a full-fledged PC and console title from IO Interactive, the other is a mobile project in the works at Square Enix Montréal. Hitman GO, a turn-based ...

I'm not sure what it is about modern Deus Ex titles and our finding out about them by scouring the internet for trademark listings, but here's yet another. Siliconera has discovered a few of interest from publisher Square Eni...
In tomorrow's PlayStation Plus update, members will be able to download Hitman Absolution for free and save on other PSN titles. There's a big ol' Rayman franchise sale -- including Origins for as low as $5.00 -- plus Es...
When you think of IO Interactive, Hitman comes to mind. Maybe Kane & Lynch or Freedom Fighters as well -- sorry to reopen old wounds -- but the long-running stealth franchise is certainly right up in there. We'l...
Despite each game clearing at least a million sales, Square Enix has revealed Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution and Sleeping Dogs all failed to meet their targets. This news comes on the same day the company projected a 13 bill...

Here's today's Destructoid Show, which is the 400th episode. According to the folder we keep on the server, which also contains a bunch of E3 videos, so technically it's not the 400th episode. But we wore sombreros anyway.&nb...
Okay, secret confession -- today's Destructoid Show was actually shot yesterday. Because today, we have to go on a field trip to preview a bunch of games. If the news seems a little less fresh than usual, that's probably why....
It seems controversy and Hitman: Absolution are destined are go hand-in-hand. Square Enix drew fire earlier this year for a trailer in which Agent 47 beat the crap out of fetishized nuns, and was criticized incredibly harshly...
Adam Jensen of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has great hair. Agent 47 of Hitman: Absolution has none. Still, that won't stop him from dressing up as Adam with some new DLC. He gets the Deus Ex Suit and the Deus Ex Zenith gun as ...

Square Enix has decided that an online pass will no longer be required to play Hitman: Absolution's Contracts multiplayer mode. Even though there will exist copies of the game containing a code, it will not be required to acc...
While you all are eating turkey and putting up decorations, I'll be killing people. Lots of people. This game is going to be killer.  Get it? Hitman: Absolution is right around the corner, dropping for PS3, Xbox 360 and...
With Far Cry 3 less than a month away, the freddiew team of Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch fuel the hype machine with an appropriate homage. A sunny, beach-side getaway in Belize is too trivial for ol' Mr. Wong. He needs a...
Today on The Destructoid Show, we weren't live -- which is a shame. But we still did a show.  Ubisoft released a developer diary for Watch_Dogs which is actually a recruitment video, Hitman: Absolution has a se...
Straight up voyeur! This guy is supposed to be a hitman, but sometimes when he's lurking in the shadows, watching people, I'm thinking he looks more like a creeper perv.  Well, whatever works. He gets the job done. ...

This new "Disguises" trailer for Hitman: Absolution takes us through many of the get-ups that Agent 47 can wear to get the job done. Most of them are for blending in to get close, but some of them have to be for fun. A chick...
I've seen some deals in my time, but it's been a while since I felt it necessary to drop what I was doing and spread the word. Right now, Amazon is offering its "Absolutely Great Square Pack" for $9.99, which totally lives up...
