Posted on Tuesday, January 7 @ 04:50:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
[Update] Square Enix has released an official statement, clarifying the current status of the Hitman franchise. While the Montreal studio may not be working on a new Hitman title, IO Interactive is still very much attached to the series.
[Original] The next-gen Hitman game from Square Enix Montreal has reportedly been canceled, according to the résumé of a game designer on the project.
Senior designer Richard Knight's LinkedIn page indicates that the next game starring everyone's favorite bald assassin has been scrapped. That said, this doesn't necessarily mean Square is abandoning the franchise entirely, as IO Interactive may still be working on a new entry in the series in Square Enix Montreal's stead.
