Square Enix Announces Upcoming Mobile Game Hitman Sniper Assassins

During the SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS Digital Event held last March 18, Square Enix has announced the arrival of the mobile game Hitman Sniper Assassins.


Although it is still only a working title, Hitman Sniper Assassins will be as you may have expected it to be. As the name suggests, it will be a follow up to the shooting-gallery-style mobile game Hitman: Sniper. It will be developed by Square Enix Montreal, who was responsible behind the amazing Hitman Go, Lara Craft Go, and Deus Ex Go, and is their first new title in five years. During the event, the company released a quick teaser trailer for the upcoming game and then provided additional details on a follow up press release.

In case you've never played the Hitman game series before, it is a gallery shooter game where you plot different ways to kill targets from afar while peering at the scene through a rifle scope. You then earn points and scramble up the leaderboards.

But unlike Hitman Sniper, the actions for Hitman Sniper Assassins will be taking place in different spots around the world while assembling a team of snipers, each with their own unique personalities and weapon. It is a warm advanced welcome to all fans of the franchise.

Square Enix Montreal Executive Producer Dominic Allaire said “Praised as one of the best mobile games available upon its release, Hitman Sniper raised the bar for player expectations of mobile sniper games.” He also added that “Project Hitman Sniper Assassins will be an evolutionary leap forward for the genre, and we can’t wait for players to share our excitement when they get their hands on it in the coming months.” The company also added that the upcoming game will be a "wholly original Hitman story, with new playable assassins and brand-new gameplay features".

Hitman Sniper Assassins is currently set to launch on mobile some time this year as Square Enix will announce more details at a later date. However, there is already a product page at Google Play Store where the game is available for early access. You may be able to download and install it, depending on where you're from.
