The new Hitman game for mobile has surprising potential

0

IO 'absolutely loved' the concept

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 strategy game, is the latter and it's launching soon.

"We had total creative freedom to explore this and see what we could come up with -- something separate to the AAA game that is being developed at IOI, but something which still retained the essence of what a Hitman game is," writes the studio. "This was a lot of fun and we decided to develop something quite different and, we hope, totally unexpected."

It's still stealth, just one move at a time. According to Montréal, "...all the Hitman tools of the trade you would expect are included; disguises, distractions, sniper rifles and even 47's iconic Silverballers." Ordinarily I'd be skeptical of a longtime series jumping to mobile for the sake of it, but since Hitman GO is its own thing, I'm willing to give it a look.

Hello from Montréal! [Hitman]
