Next-gen Hitman title has been canceled by Square Enix Montreal
According to recently discovered LinkenIn profiles, the next-gen Hitman title which was hinted to be in development at Square Enix Montreal has been canceled in favor of focusing all development towards a mobile game for the series.
While it hasn't been made official by the studio nor Square Enix themselves, the project itself was hinted to have been canned as early as mid-2013. The reason for the cancelation also appears to have been related to Square Enix's recent restructuring which included a stronger emphasis towards mobile development.
According to a few details leaked, the next-gen Hitman game would have been another re-imagining of the series, contain a micro-transaction system, and online leaderboard support.
