Square Enix Announces New Hitman

Square Enix revealed the latest Hitman game at Sony’s press conference, and it’s leading with a digital release that will, in their words, “grow, deepen, and evolve” as time goes on.

There will also be a console beta for this new Hitman game, and the PS4 version will have six exclusive contracts. It sounds like they’re going to release a smaller version of Hitman that becomes bigger and bigger as the months go on, perhaps influenced by what players respond to.

Square Enix says it’s coming on December 8, with the game “evolving and deepening over time, with this initial storyline concluding in 2016.”


Specifically, though, the company is promising you’ll spend $60—and that’s it.

“This is new ground for HITMAN, coming out digital first enables us to do something new, bold and exciting,” said Hannes Seifert, Studio Head at Io-Interactive. “We are building a live, expanding and evolving world of assassination where we continuously develop the game, listening closely to the players as we release new locations, missions and hits as soon as they are ready - where $60 and not a dollar more gets you full access to the experience.”

Stay tuned. Square Enix has a press conference tomorrow.
