[Update]Square Enix has released an official statement, clarifying the current status of theHitmanfranchise. While the Montreal studio may not be working on a newHitmantitle, IO Interactive is still very much attached to the series.
Io-Interactive is developing a new, AAA Hitman game that will be coming to PC and next-gen consoles and Square Enix Montreal is fully focused on mobile development of games some of which are related to the Hitman franchise. We look forward to sharing more details about these titles later this year.
