Square Enix Montreal Making Next Hitman
It seems that a new hitman game is already in the works and is being developed at Square Enix Montreal instead of the remaining in-house team. Absolution’s director Tore Blystad stated with OPM that the development will be similar to Call of Duty, with Square Enix and IO alternating between games.
“We’ve been talking about these similarities to some of the big movie franchise like Aliens, where everyone’s doing it their own way. Every time someone gets their hands on a franchise they do something different. So rather than doing the same thing again you get another take on the character from a fresh perspective.”
So it would seem Hitman is going to be a yearly franchise. Though, according to Blystad, it seems that while based in the same series, the games from the different companies will be different takes on the series.
